The Ambassador Theatre in Pt Chevalier turns 90 years old this April. To celebrate her long life and colourful stories, Cupid bar presents a week of special events. Limited numbers of guests will be permitted to enter via Peter Roche's studio for a peek at the former theatre space.
Opening night on Tuesday 9th April features a Q&A session hosted by Russell Brown and others telling some yarns. Did you know the Ambassador was one of the best independent rock’n’roll venues in Tamaki Makaurau? Many a band formed here or played their first live gig. Some stories of debauchery, drugs and liquor may be true and some may be invented…. but who could make this stuff up?
FREE Comedy night First Saturday of every month!
Every good comedian has unique jokes and material, but what if we made comedians swap their jokes with each other? It's going to be hilarious chaos as YOU get an insider look at stand up comedy!
The Comedy Experiment is a series of monthly comedy shows that are like no other. They're all daring, experimental and fun!
Fresh from opening the DJ stage at Splore 2019, Sandy Mill and Russell Brown bring the Mum 'n' Dad Disco sound to town, with five hours of delicious disco, gorgeous grooves, sizzling soul, righteous reggae and parental post-punk. It's the debrief you need with the people you want to be around, Point Chev styles.
In the words of the great Jimmy "Bo" Horne, "Let's do it, let's dance, let's dance across the floor" and furthermore "Let's do it, let's dance, let's do it some more."
