The Lodge 223

27 Blaydon Street Waikaia




The Masonic Lodge Rooms were built in the early 1930's and in true masonic tradition the building has stood the test of time and is now one of the older buildings that still stands proud in the middle of the Waikaia township.  The Switzers Freemasons still hold monthly general meetings in the lodge rooms but have generously given the building over to host cinema viewing nights. (Once or twice a month)



The main meeting room in the Lodge has been transformed into Waikaia's very own pop up cinema.  All the history and character within the Lodge creates a very unique vibe.  To add to the experience we have an eclectic mix of seating including 2 and 3 seater couches, lazyboy recliners and the odd bean bag.



The movies that we show will be selected from films festivals, documentaries, foreign language films and some old classics. It's a hard list to get on, films are the cream of the crop.  Recommendations always welcomed!
