Whether you’ve been on the mountain skiing all day, or simply out exploring all that Niseko has to offer, the perfect way to end your Tuesday night is with a family movie extravaganza!

We encourage our guests to kick back and relax in our toasty warm theatre, so feel free to flaunt your pyjamas and bring along a blanket for extra cosiness. Then, all that’s left to do is cuddle up with your loved ones, and enjoy the show.

Each week will feature a new and exciting movie suitable for the whole family (we love Pixar).
