About Us

The Shoreline Cinema is an independent cinema established in the seaside town of Waikanae in 2008. The owner Peter Avery is a Kapiti local with a passion for film and hospitality. 

Featuring an eclectic mix of films from around the world that both inspire and entertain, Peter has not only brought his passion for good film to the Kapiti coast but also the experience that encapsulates boutique cinema.

Featuring a contemporary selection of NZ wines, the sumptuous Rangitoto espresso blend from Allpress Coffee, and the award winning range of Tuatara beers made by the blokes just up the road. Throw into the mix a range of fresh organic teas and beverages. Making the experience more enjoyable we have an assortment of bakery delights from the clever ladies at Tom Thumb.

For those of you who enjoy a more technical spin, our cinema features two state of the art auditoriums, equipped with NEC electronic digital projection. Both theatres are fully air-conditioned and feature 7.1 Dolby surround sound. They are also equipped with the latest hearing-impaired technologies.

You can enjoy all this in our supremely comfortable couches, especially designed for our theatre.

The Shoreline offers a constantly changing selection of the best films we can find, so please keep checking into this site for updates of screenings coming movies.

The Shoreline crew are proud of our cinema and look forward to entertaining you soon.
