Metro by HOYTS at Centre Place, Hamilton, is like no other cinema in New Zealand. If you blended your favourite movie house with a New York City street, it would look and feel like this.
Your tastebuds are in for a treat, thanks to the candy bar snacks and diner-style food and drinks on offer – chilli fries, hot dogs, nachos, beer and wine, anyone? So come early and stay late in our foyer chill-out zone – or take your food into the cinema to enjoy a meal in a movie.
Metro by HOYTS also enforces a ‘no disturbance’ policy for guests. Meaning? No latecomers after 20 minutes of the advertised start time and talkers, texters and tweeters will be asked to leave. We’ll do the same if someone makes noise near you (although we’ll go easy on the little ones in family films).
And that’s not all: our crew have been hired for their personalities, so the fun begins when you walk through the front door (don’t worry, there are no fast-food robots here!).
The year is 1936. As the Third Reich continues its reign of terror, Adolf Hitler is on a quest for the legendary Ark of the Covenant - resting place of the Ten Commandments - whose supernatural powers, legend says, can wipe out entire armies.
