Spoilt For Choice

Don’t settle for a run-of-the-mill cinema experience – treat yourself to a great one!

Going to the movies used to be an experience.  Metro by Hoyts and Lido Cinema at Centre Place will bring that feeling back!

FREE parking
When you see a movie at either of our cinemas, we offer four hours of FREE parking. When you purchase your movie ticket, register your vehicle license plate at the same time at the tablet provided.  Four hours FREE parking is only available at the Centre Place Bryce Street carpark.

Lido Cinema bringing luxury back

Hamilton’s boutique cinema.

Add a touch of elegance and class to your movie experience. The Lido offers an extensive collection of art house, festival and blockbuster movies. The Lido is located on the upper level at Centre Place.  Not convinced of how special this cinema experience really is?  Check out their reviews on TripAdvisor!

Recline in style at Metro by HOYTS

The movies aren’t different but Metro by HOYTS sure is!

No other cinema in New Zealand looks like this one. Imagine your favourite movie house blended with a New York City street and it would look and feel like this: urban and cool, with chill-out zones in the foyer. Watch the biggest blockbusters in one of the five digital cinemas with standard seating or go for all-out comfort in theatres full of lux leather recliners.

Metro by HOYTS has you covered whether you’re in the mood for an action, horror, romance or family flick (and everything else in between), with extra-late screenings on Friday and Saturday nights. You’ll love the classic movie snacks and Ultimate Meal Deals to level up your movie experience.

As if you needed another reason, every cinema at HOYTS has surround sound. But to full immerse yourself in superior sound, you need superior comfort. That’s why the seats at HOYTS are our signature extra-comfy powered recliners. They’re comfier, spacious, boast extra legroom and even feature a side table and large cup holder, so you can sit back, relax and recline in style.

So, how does it feel? A little like upgrading from economy to business class.

If how you see a movie is as important as what you watch, then METRO by Hoyts is for you.
