HALF EXPERIENCE + DINNER
Calling foodies and film buffs! An evening of inspiring stories and fine food awaits...
Your adventure starts with a guided journey from the Wellington i-SITE to Weta Workshop Tours in Miramar. Catch a glimpse of iconic Wellington film sites, pointed out by your knowledgeable driver. On arrival, snap a selfie with our amazing life-size sculptures and wander through our mini-museum. Browse the Weta Cave shop, a cavern of creativity packed with high-end, Weta-designed collectibles, apparel, books and more, before taking a seat for Weta’s exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary.
Your Weta Cave Workshop Tour will then begin! Guided by a Weta Workshop crew member, you’ll explore props and costumes that appear in your favourite films. From The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit to King Kong and District 9, hear our tales of filmmaking creativity on the Miramar Peninsula.
Worked up an appetite? Your driver will take you to CoCo at the Roxy, the Roxy Cinema’s restaurant, for a delicious three-course meal. CoCo’s cuisine fuses flavours from across the globe with the best produce our region has to offer. In the Roxy’s gorgeous Art Deco setting, you’ll dine among incredible artworks, movie memorabilia, and sculptures showcasing Weta Workshop talent. [See example menu]
Wrap up your experience with a night drive back to central Wellington, bellies full and heads brimming with the secrets behind the movie magic!
