The Vic Cinema, in the heart of Auckland’s seaside village of Devonport, offers the best new films, live performances and special events. It works with The Victoria Theatre Trust, which you can read more about here.
The Vic has a rich and proud history, dating back to 1912, the era of silent film. It has withstood numerous challenges over the last hundred years to emerge as a beloved local venue and art deco treasure.
Visitors to The Vic can enjoy the latest blockbusters, live musicians and family events, in spacious or intimate cinema settings. There is wine, beer, snacks, the best choc tops in town and fresh gelato, made by locals trained by an Italian master pastry chef. With wheelchair accessibility into our main foyer and Cinema 1.
The Vic also offers membership specials, Cheap Tuesdays and partnership opportunities. We’d love to speak with you about how we can support you or your events or special occasions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Philipp on 021 190 3007 for a chat.

The Victoria Theatre Trust was formed in 2004 to save the theatre from permanent closure, and has since helped turn The Vic into a well-loved and frequented venue.
The Trust has a long-term plan and ambitions to upgrade and support the venue further. This will require support from the community and others who want to see this historic venue thrive.
The Trust is raising $700,000 for a new foyer, which will double the space, replace the worn carpet, enhance the heritage features and ensure a far more comfortable experience for visitors.
The Trust needs $200,000 now, so it can apply for grants to raise the full amount later in 2020. Please help us restore this local theatre by donating,
