With effect from Friday 3rd December we are required to operate as a vaccine mandated facility.

We are able to remove distancing in our cinema. To ensure we can operate safely we ask that you continue to book online to secure your seat. 
Please bring your valid COVID vaccine pass and we recommend mask wearing on entry and exit for your own safety. 
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we implement this new system. 

Cinema Paradiso Methven is a boutique cinema located near Mt Hutt, twenty five minutes from Ashburton.

We are one of the smallest cinemas in New Zealand able to offer the latest blockbuster movies.

Open five days a week, we are licensed so you can enjoy a glass of wine or a beer with your movies, and we offer soft drinks, popcorn and lollies.
