A first date at the movies takes on new possibilities with the introduction of daybeds in New Zealand theatres.

Event Cinemas is the first in the country to bring daybed seats to their theatres, advertised as offering "the ultimate movie-watching experience".

"Snuggle up and enjoy the movie like never before — in your very own daybed."

The low-lying seats have been installed at Event Westgate and Tauranga and feature removable centre armrests and back cushions.

The beds are similar to ones offered in Queensland (pictured).

And don't worry- customers won't be able to get up to any frisky business  as the beds are positioned at the front of the cinema.

But the cosy experience doesn't come cheap.

Tauranga Crossing offers standard rates of a single daybed at $25 and double at $50, while in their IMAX theatres, that goes up to $56. At Westgate, the double costs $44, compared to a normal price of a single adult seat at $15.
