Ambassador Theatre 90th Birthday

Full schedule of events here:

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?

We also have a reunion gig by Labretta Suede and the Motel 6, a jazz-inspired cocktail night, special guest DJs and the final act before the curtains fall: Warm Leather on Saturday 13th April.
