There is no town in New Zealand called Waikato.

In this general area there were:

  1. Hamilton – Everybodys, 1920’s, renamed Embassy 1946, registered seating cap. 995

  2. Thames – Kings, 1911, renamed Embassy 1951, registered seating cap. 651

No Royal theatre/cinema have been renamed “Embassy” or any other name.
