We couldn’t help ourselves. No, we’re not talking about reading books in New Zealand, we’re talking about Reading Cinemas – one of the country’s leading cinema chains with multiple locations.

Reading Cinemas has been operating in New Zealand as an entertainment company since 2002, according to their Facebook page. They are owned and operated by Reading Entertainment, who also has cinema locations across Australia and United States.

As of writing, there are 8 locations across New Zealand in which Reading Cinemas are located. As you can see in the pricing table above, the Invercargill, Rotorua, and Queenstown locations have different pricing structures compared with the rest.

Reading Cinemas Courtenay was one of the most recent locations to join the others in offering the same prices for all ticket classes. In May 2016, they joined the rest, lowering their ticket prices from $16 to $10 across all its standard movie showings.
