Located on the corner of Queen Street and Wellesley Street in Auckland city centre. Built in 1929, and opened on 20th December 1929 as a ‘talkie’ picture house. Designed in a lavish Atmospheric style, the Civic Theatre was equipped with a Wurlitzer 3Manual/16Ranks organ. The theatre showed movies exclusively until 1998.
In 1999, as part of an extensive renovation, the theatre’s basement was converted to a cabaret. Additionally, the main auditorium stage was enlarged to accomodate plays, opera, ballet, etc, and every July it hosts the New Zealand International Film Festival.
The Civic Theatre is a Category A Listed building.
