United Cinemas is an Australian-owned, award-winning chain of cinemas, owned and operated by the Mustaca family, who have been in the cinema business since 1987. While United Cinemas already boasts 48 theatres across Australia, including its Opera Quays cinema adjacent to Sydney’s iconic Opera House, Bayfair will be its first New Zealand cinema complex with 7 screens featuring United’s signature dress two storey dress circle “Grand Theatre” set to house the largest screen and Dolby Atmos Digital Sound offering in the region. 

United Cinemas Australia chairman Roy Mustaca says they chose Bayfair because they would like to offer one of the most compelling entertainment experiences in the country. 

“We want to be a part of the Bayfair Shopping Centre transformation and offer the people of the Bay of Plenty region an exceptional cinema experience. Each cinema will feature plush stadium seating, 300 electric grand recliners and our a la carte in-theatre dining menu delivering quality food and beverage to patrons’ seats.
