GrabOne is proud to welcome Monterey Cinemas into our stable of wonderful merchants. This boutique Howick movie theatre has been recently renovated and is now managed by the skilled masterminds behind the Rialto Cinema chain.
Check out their GrabOne deal here.
The history of the Monterey is equal parts iconic and illustrious. Opening to great success in 1929, the following years involved late night dances, bankruptcy, theatre and music – all under one roof. However, after the advent of multiplexes, declining patronage meant that the Monterey closed it’s doors in 1993.
It’s hard to imagine that this stunning building was once in a state of disrepair, gutted by fire in 1998 and long abandoned by the once-faithful movie going public. Thanks to the efforts of Kelly Rogers and David Ross, the Monterey has had an incredible overhaul, boasting an upmarket selection of films, right in the heart of Howick.
Make your own memories at this cinematic institution and re-live the glory days of cinema. Long live the Monterey!
