  • Have visited this theatre a number of times with a touring band. It's central, easy to access, and has some amazing NZ history. The front foyer is a look back to the 1920's and '30's. The core of the building is old but really well maintained. On tour this is one of my favourite venues in NZ. Staff at the ticket office are awesome!
  • Great acoustics, comfortable seats, plenty of leg room and of course, classic art deco design. The New Zealand Symphony gave a delightful, world-class performance tonight. Fantastic evening!!
  • Beautiful place and suits Napier's art deco theme. Spacious and good leg room in the seats. Lighting is great and the stage is good. Great shows and tours. My only complaint is the seats are a bit scratchy so I suggest wearing long pants or a long skirt
  • Great space between the rows make for comfortable entry of late comers. Theatre was kept at a good temperature as well. Always a pleasure to attend a show here. Friendly staff and great environment
  • Wonderful ArtDeco Theater. Great Navy Concert but disappointingly short.
