There are two main cinemas in Buller – the NBS Theatre in Westport and the Reefton Cinema.

Westport - NBS Theatre

Located in the centre of Westport, the NBS Theatre has a 367-seat auditorium and two cinemas.

NBS Theatre

The auditorium is perfect for hosting small to large scale events. Whether it’s a full theatrical production, a concert, a school reunion, an awards ceremony, or even a corporate dinner the theatre is the place for it. Funerals and weddings can also be held at the NBS Theatre.

The auditorium also has a three-metre-wide cross-over to the back of the stage, a green room, two dressing rooms, backstage toilets and shower, and a kitchen.

The Bill Moffitt Cinema at the NBS Theatre seats 55 and is the ultimate in digital cinema technology.

It offers high-definition viewing thanks to the NEC DLP projector, with a 7.2 surround sound system powered by Dolby with Hypacoustic speakers, digital 3D powered by Xpand and ultimately powered by a Doremi Digital Cinema Server.

The Fred Gregory Screen Room at the NBS Theatre screens mainstream movies as well as art house, foreign film and Met Opera. With only 20 seats, including 2 two-seater couches, the Screen Room is a small cosy intimate cinema. It is also available for private screenings, birthday parties and meetings.
