New eight-cinema complex in Christchurch gets the green light


A new $7 Million movie cinema with eight screens is set to open in Wigram later this year on the corner of Corsair Dr and The Runway.

It seems to be the perfect location for a cinema since the Hornby cinema closed down a few years ago. It’s set to be boutique styled complex rather than being like the larger movie cinemas around Christchurch. 

The new Silky Otter cinema’s is owned by kiwis is about to open the door to its first cinema in Auckland this month playing mainstream, local and independent movies.

It’s fair to say we are very excited as this development gets under way, exciting times for Wigram!
