Embassy Theatre is Wellington's sole surviving grand picture palace, that opened in 1924 as the Deluxe and changed its name to the Embassy in 1945. A multimillion-dollar deal allowed the Cinema and Performing Arts Trust, including the 'Lord of the Rings' film director Peter Jackson, to take over the theater in 1997. The 800-seat theater was restored with a state of the art sound system. For cinema purists, who do not like the small multiplex theaters, this is the only way to watch a movie.
