Embassy Theatre

Kent Terrace
Mt Victoria, Wellington
The Australasian Premiere of "The Fellowship of the Ring" was held here on December 19 2001. "The Two Towers" premiered a year later. Then in 2003 the Embassy was the venue for the World Premiere of "The Return of the King". The New Zealand premiere of "King Kong" followed on December 14 2005. The World Premiere of "The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey", took place on November 28 2012.

The Embassy is one of the venues for the New Zealand International Film Festival normally held in July.

Within the Embassy on the first floor, Blondini's Café and Jazz Lounge offers coffee and cakes and an outstanding Art Deco visual experience. In 2012 the old orchestra pit was converted into a bar and lounge by Designgroup Stapleton Elliott in association with Indyk Architects. It has "the glamour of the 1920s film era apparent in the colour, texture and pattern of the fabrics, light fittings and wall treatments."
