Movie buffs are in for a big treat as a new Hoyts cinema experience will soon be unveiled at the Ormiston Town Centre set to open March.

Inside the multi-million-dollar build, movie-goers will experience eight auditoriums and a host of new features that transform the classic cinema outing including extra-comfy recliners in all auditoriums boasting extra leg room and wider seating offered at the standard ticket price.

There are also two Xtremescreen auditoriums complete with Dolby Atmos surround sound and picture.

The classic pre-movie ritual has also been flipped.

Think your favourite beer or wine paired with gourmet pizza at Artie’s Bar & Café (you can take them into the cinema with you), or there’s Treat City where you can choose your favourite sweet treats in an immersive Candy Bar experience.

“We are incredibly excited to expand our cinema offering in New Zealand once again,” says Ceo of The Hoyts Group, Damian Keogh.

“While we have seen plenty of challenges within the cinema industry in the last year, Hoyts Ormiston really showcases our commitment to the movie-going experience in Auckland.”

The site opens alongside the second phase of the Ormiston Town Centre in March.
