In a basement deep under the Auckland Public Library, this cinema specializes in quality, art and cross-over movies. Owner John Hart, one of the industry's leading characters who started his career as an ice-cream boy in the late 1940s, built the cinema in 1982. He chose the site for its proximity to other theaters and the University of Auckland. It seats 230 people, and three years ago had its technical equipment upgraded to include Dolby stereo. A coffee shop is incorporated into the lobby.
