Rialto Cinemas Tauranga

As you may know, the Rialto brand of cinemas offer something a little different than your standard “family movie theatre”. Away from all the children, the noise and loud, blaring movies, Rialto offers art-house and boutique movies from around the world, including many from Europe. You won’t find the latest blockbuster here.

What makes Rialto Cinemas Tauranga different is a friendlier layout and modern design. Plush armchairs, mini tables and smaller theatre sizes mean a more refined atmosphere. For the the traditionalists popcorn IS available, heck you can even order a wine or a beer to watch the movie in style.

Rialto’s motto is “Experience Quality” – you won’t see your average theatre with that on their walls. The Rialto tradition offers the “cultured crowd” movies with substance, and strong story lines…Movies that you can’t help but talk about at the end. Here is a 30 second snapshot of the theatre by Tauranga, New Zealand journalist Grant Dyson:

Seriously civilised movie-going in a genuinely state-of-the-art boutique complex. (No crummy blockbusters or teenage popcorn audiences). Relax in armchair luxury with a glass of wine or a coffee. Rialto is a three-screen complex seating 204 moviegoers, billed as an industry ‘first’ for New Zealand, opened in July 2005. Digital sound and screens, and online ticket-buying. Fully licensed bar.”
