The Cheapest Movie Tickets in Auckland

Talk of cinema pricing – heard everywhere, not least of all in our 2015 Cinema Census – often excludes the various discounts available to moviegoers.

So we looked around, crunched the numbers, and compiled the below list to compare Auckland ticket prices and find where/when you can get them at their cheapest.

Note: These are adult ticket prices – we have not taken into account senior discounts, student discounts, child discounts, 3D prices, public holiday charges, special event prices, premium class options, one-off promos or club loyalty cards. We also realise that different cinemas vary when it comes to screen quality, projection quality, sound quality, staff competence, film selection, and other aspects that contribute to the value of the movie-going experience.
