Auckland’s Civic theatre is 90 years old. Stuff takes a look back at its colourful history, the facelifts it’s has had over the years and why it’s become such a beloved landmark in NZ’s largest city. From now until December this year, Auckland Live is offering sessions in which tour guide James Manning gives a chronological breakdown of the hall’s most memorable happenings, while beckoning guests into some of the building’s most interesting nooks and crannies.
