Kings Theatre Creative, Kawakawa

#5 of 8 in Things to do in Kawakawa
Art Gallery · Hidden Gem · Shopping
Kings Theatre opened its doors in 1936 as the 'Showcase of the Bay of Islands' screening movies and creating entertainment and memories until 1976. The Theatre was then converted to a clothing store, second-hand-mart and most recently a kids play area. Now a new owner and creative team hope to transform the theatre back into a showcase, not just of the Bay of Islands, but for Tai Tokerau art, environment and culture. Connecting East & West as the cultural junction of the Far North/Bay of Islands District of New Zealand. A welcome to the essence of Northland and a place to connect with yourself, each other, the past, the future, the whenua and the spirit.
