Night out - Reading cinema

Reading CinemaFeet up, sit back, relax... lazy-boy reclining chairs, unlimited popcorn and softdrink, and the largest screens in Wellington makes Reading Cinema the ultimate experience for moviegoers. Part of a mixed entertainment and shopping complex, Courtenay Central in Courtenay Place, Wellington is also home to an extensive foodcourt, mixed retail outlets and floors of carparking.

The majority of Courtenay Central's exterior titan sheet cladding was completed using Resene X-200 weathertight membrane to protect against Wellington's intermittently fierce weather conditions. Resene Zylone Sheen was used throughout the interior broadwall areas complemented by Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterbased enamel on trim and joinery in a myriad of different colours to suit the design plans of the retailers and anchor tenant Reading Cinema.

From a potholed gravel carpark to a complex attracting thousands of movie-goers each week, the ultimate in big screen entertainment is proving an irresistible drawcard.
