Venue & Accommodation

Embassy Theatre is a cinema in Wellington, located at the Eastern end of Courtenay Place in the shadow of Mount Victoria. Originally built in 1924, the building is recognised as a place of historical/cultural significance and is the only custom-built 1920s cinema still in use in New Zealand.



The Embassy Wellington does not offer onsite accommodation, however given its location in the heart of Wellington City - there are an abundance of accommodation options nearby to suit all levels of budget.

We would recommend the following accommodation option, located in close proximity to The Embassy, with very reasonable accommodation pricing.
