"You shall not pass!" on this one!
The "Embassy" building or Thames Cinema " is like a box of chocolates", there are too many inviting options. With it's significant freehold land area of 658m2 (more or less) and 635m2 (more or less) floor area consisting of three cinemas, large cafe / snack bar and two large toilet blocks, there is more room than the Hotel Overlook in The Shining. Off-street parking is available off Martha Street. With a Commercial (8A) zoning you could go "to infinity, and beyond" with possibilities. Could this be a perfect combination for a cafe, restaurant, bar, night-club, events, entertainment, boutique cinema business? CBD apartments are another possibility that should be explored. This building needs a little 'wax on, wax off' or TLC to get her back to her former glory but she is still captivating and "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn" about those who say otherwise. Double frontage on Pollen Street through to Martha Street is an appealing offering. Some earthquake strengthening has already been completed.
This nostalgic beauty has been a treasure to the local Hauraki movie and theatre goers for approximately 100 years. This building has seen first kisses, bucket loads of buttery popcorn, and smiles bigger than that of the Joker when he's tormenting The Batman. The Vendor is ready to say "hasta la vista, baby" to the property and "Show me the Money"! if anyone says "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse".
