About Us


The ShoreLine Cinema is an independent Cinema established in the seaside town of Waikanae in 2008. The owner Peter Avery is a Kapiti local with a passion for film and hospitality.  

Featuring an eclectic mix of films around the world that both inspire and entertain, Peter and Barry have not only brought their passion for good film to the Kapiti coast, but also the experience that encapsulates boutique cinema.

Featuring a contemporary selection of NZ wines, the sumptuous Rangitoto espresso blend from Allpress coffee, and the award winning range of Tuatara beers made by the blokes just up the road. Throw into the mix iconic delectables such as Corellos del Gelato, and a range of fresh organic teas and beverages. Making the experience more enjoyable we have an assortment of bakery delights from our local Olde Beach Patisserie.

For those of you who enjoy a more technical spin, our cinema features two state of the art auditoriums, equipped with 35mm and electronic projection. Both theatres are fully air-conditioned and feature 7.1 Dolby surround sound. They are also equipped with the latest hearing-impaired technologies.

You can enjoy all this in our supremely comfortable couches, especially designed for our theatre.

The ShoreLine offers a constantly changing selection of the best films we can find, so please keep checking into this site for updates of screenings coming movies.

The Shoreline crew are proud of our cinema and look forward to entertaining you soon.
