Description:

The Auditorium at the NBS Theatre is the perfect place for any large event...

The Auditorium at the NBS Theatre is the perfect place for any large event you may have planned. Whether its a full theatrical production, a concert, a school reunion, an awards ceremony, or even a corporate dinner, we've got you covered at the NBS Theatre Auditorium. The Auditorium can seat up to 405, but is normally set up to seat 359. Planning a banquet? Why not have it at the NBS Theatre? You can seat your guests on the stage, and if you need some more room we can remove the first three tiers of the seating to increase the flat floor area to accommodate a band perhaps, or just a dance floor, or both!

The Auditorium also has a 3 meter wide cross over to the back of the stage, a Green Room, two Dressing Rooms, backstage toilets and shower, and even a kitchen.

Wen went on a Friday afternoon the heater was quite busy with people buying tickets and at $14.00 a reasonable price though may have to drop in the future as some city theatres are doing to attract more patrons. The cinema was full with a good mix of people from young children to oldies like me. The surroundings whilst not... More

I saw a live show here (Coaltown blues) in their large theatre, which had comfortable seats and good light and sound. The theatre would not be out of place in a large town. I also visited to watch a film. Again it was comfortable with good quality picture and sound, it got a little cold in the cinema so take... More

I loved this new movie theatre in Westprt. Went to watch "City of Bones" with a few friends and found it quite good. However the seats were a bit funny as you felt like they would fold you into them. Otherwise I think the size was good, easy to get into the aisles, friendly staff and very comfortable.

The big hall was very good for the NZSO concert we attended. Pretty basic but modern. The seats in the small movie theatre were pretty uncomfortable though.
