Located at Level 2 of Lumiere Cinemas is our lovely, cosy and warm Bijou Bar, there you’ll find all things catering for your taste pallet with an outstanding view of the Christchurch Botanical Gardens at your doorstep. Opening early evenings thru to after the start of the last show of the evening let us entertain you in relaxing surroundings either pre or after the show.
