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

We are the smallest cinema in New Zealand able to offer the latest blockbuster movies.

Open six 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.

We have recently been joined by Cissy’s Ice-cream Parlour bringing Deep South Ice-cream in cones, milkshakes, smoothies and a full Sundae menu.
