In 1976, the Academy Cinema was opened in the old Boys High Gymnasium in the Arts Centre in Christchurch. The Auditorium held 220 seats and became a centre for "art-house" film in Christchurch. The business was owned by Masters Cinemas and managed by Rodney Cook, a shoe designer with a passion for film. In 1986 the Cloisters Cinema - a smaller 70-seat auditorium - was opened in the nearby Scott building in what was originally a television studio.
