Buying Tickets

Advance tickets are available for all sessions and can be made from the venue where the film is screening. Ticket numbers are very limited due to socially distanced seating. As these box offices are operated for NZIFF by the venues themselves, they are not equipped to sell tickets for other NZIFF venues.

From Fri 3 Dec, Len Lye Centre Cinema and Event Cinemas New Plymouth will require audience members to present a My Vaccine Pass and sign in to gain entry.

Event Cinemas New Plymouth:
Tickets can be purchased during regular opening hours. We regret there are no telephone bookings.
