Confluence Cinema is a 30-40 seat single screen art-house style theatre built within a heritage 1920s building facing Whanganui's historic river front.
Operating since 2018 as a cinema dedicated to documentary, art-house, foreign, and festival films, our loyal and growing audiences enjoy the alternative big-screen experience. We often host filmmakers and crew for public or private screenings of their work, and can combine this with a coworking desk for a complete edit-review-screening suite away from home. An ideal package can be customised for regional productions wanting desk space and cinema facilities within one building.
Cinema hire rates start from free for productions shooting locally wanting a single screening, and are negotiable for more frequent use or test screenings.
Public screenings are weekly on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
Please note due to the size and preservation of comfort for those enjoying our venue we choose to only operate publicly under Alert Level 1 conditions.
