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.
