Whether you'd like a drink, something to eat, a movie, or all 3, you're guaranteed a premium entertainment and dining experience. Fresh, modern flavours, an extraordinary wine and craft beer list, and the latest sound and vision technology. Visit us!


We’re a purpose-built cinema complex, which features two 60-seat screens and a contemporary restaurant, café and bar. Choose from globally-influenced small plate flavours, sample our extensive wine and craft beer list, or take a specially crafted foodie treat and beverage in to the movie with you. With over 24 years of experience owning and operating restaurants, Eve Buchanan has brought a fresh and fun approach to food and entertainment to the region. Eve and her team are strong believers in making daily eating a little bit exceptional. Our menu is the great balance between local and global – taking the very best of both worlds, infusing fresh Wairarapa bounty with lessons from far-off lands to create dishes which will often surprise and always delight. Our menu changes with the seasons, inspired by the generous offerings from our local growers. We’re all about creating a delicious experience that makes eating more than simply a meal, creating food you can share, food you’ll want more of, and food you’ll come back for. The wine list offers an impressive 40 wines by the glass, so there really is something for every occasion, which is backed up by an equally impressive selection of NZ craft beers to choose from. The Screening Room also has a state-of-the-art two-screen cinema, where you can escape the mundane with a whimsical love story, or a nail-biting thriller, either way you can enjoy it with a mouth-watering tapa and a glass of local wine, making it a little bit more special than anywhere else. The Screening Room is about people. She simply wouldn’t exist without them!
