Contact & About

Built in 1923, Balmoral’s heritage-listed Capitol Cinema is Auckland’s second oldest. Renovated most recently in 2009, the cosy 130-seat cinema is plush with large comfortable seating and original decor.

The Capitol screens the best in new release arthouse films together with upmarket commercial releases, regular special film events and festivals.

The cinema is licensed and supports local wines, craft beers, and a selection of imported brands. The candy bar also offers hand-rolled, organic Little Island ice creams.
