State Cinema Motueka and Nelson have made the difficult decision to adhere to Government recommendations, and to require customers to show valid NZ COVID-19 Vaccine or Exemption Passes in order to enter and view screenings at State Cinema, effective December 3rd, 2021. 

Please know that this was not a decision made lightly. We understand, intimately, the difficult position that this move will place some members of our community in, and apologise for the inconvenience and potential hurt that this may cause.  

At this time, we will not be entering into any discourse around this decision, and ask that you please exercise patience and understanding - and to refer to our Terms and ConditionsPricing and Policy, and COVID Framework pages listed on our booking sites. 

Thank you, all of you, for your support leading into this time. 
We know that without the support of Nelson/Tasman, we would not have made it through these last two years of upheaval and uncertainty - and we hope that these frameworks provide extra safety precautions for our community, and to allow us to continue to entertain and inspire you for many years to come. 

Your State Cinemas Team.
