“A beautiful building”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

Almost perfect in the way it fits the spot. I love this building. Hasve gone to many concerts/ graduations etc here and always love the feeling. You can usually get a peek inside if you try a door or two. Has a comfortable 30's feel to it.

“popular venue for major events inside and out”
Reviewed 17 October 2012

We didn't actually get to go inside because there was an excellent festival of indian culture happening outside this grand dame of a building. My host told me the piazza area outside the hall where the indian dancers did backflips on stage is a very popular event area, and that they often close the street out front on the weekend for stalls when a cultural event is held. Check out what is on before you arrive in town as I was very happily surporised. Note: The Auckland Film Festival is held just down the road in the architecturally important Civic Theatre

“Probably a little harsh....”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

But I was thinking in terms of similar internationally. Lovely place to go to see *something*, but I wouldn't go unless I was attending a cultural performance there (which I will be doing next week) Perrhaps I'm blase to it's charms? Perhaps I'd just like more comfortable seats in which to enjoy said charms.

“Lots do to”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

We live in Auckland and were surprised to find an ice-rink during the winter months. Nex door is an Imax Planet Hollywood and the hustle and bustle of the city.
