Personal Cinema movies on the ferry

Watch the latest blockbuster movies on the ferry with our Personal Cinema headsets for an undisturbed and immersive 3D and 2D movie experience!


With concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19, we are no longer taking pre-bookings for Personal Cinema headsets. Please visit the shop once aboard to check for availablility.


Watch the latest blockbusters in undisturbed bliss!

With three hours of leisure time at your disposal, our Interislander Cook Strait crossings provide the perfect opportunity to enjoy the latest cinematic sensation. But rather than sit in the movie theatre with kids munching on popcorn and an exhausted dad snoring at the back, try booking yourself a Personal Cinema headset and enjoy the whole movie theatre to yourself.

Immersive and uninterrupted, watching the latest blockbuster movies on the ferry is now a premium experience!


Best seat in the house

Our Personal Cinema headsets are incredibly lightweight and comfortable to wear. They come with closed-back circumaural headphones that deliver an unbeatable stereo audio experience - you can also plug your own headphones in via a standard mini-jack (1/8in | 3.5mm) socket.

Inside your Personal Cinema, you'll find a full-width cinema screen with the best seat in the house waiting for you. You get to choose the movie from a range of 3D and 2D blockbusters - and the 3D experience within the Personal Cinema has to be seen to be believed! 


Book now or hire on board

Personal Cinema headsets are available to book online by selecting "Extras" from the fares selection page during booking. 

If you have already booked, then you can log in to and add the Personal Cinema to your booking.

You can also hire from our shops on board Kaiarahi and Aratere, or the Reception desk on Kaitaki.

The number of Personal Cinema devices available on each sailing is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis - so get in quick!
