From director to star, you and your friends can use the latest HD equipment in our green screen studio to create a lasting memory of your birthday to share with family and friends. All finished shows will be put on USB stick for your group to take home.


Make your own TV show with stories, interviews and the weather. Our latest crazy script is all about upside-down houses, invisibility cloaks and woollen graffiti! This is a broader style news show consisting of 3 exciting stories. You may interview the world biggest liar or check out the latest news in the stock-market. Use the OnTV Television Studio equipment to bring it together.


Crime gossip and scandal from the world of Far Away – create a show of crime stories based on well-known fairy stories and folk tales. Goldilocks is arrested for breaking and entering, we catch up with Beauty and the Beast now that the honeymoon is over, and the Big Bad Wolf is in trouble again…

We had so much fun making a crime show about fairy tales. I wish we could go back and do it again!
My birthday at Capital E was really awesome! We liked dressing up as aliens and being on camera.
The team at Capital E were amazing when it came to organising the party. The children had a blast and now I have a gorgeous video to bring out on their 21st!


Explosions in the Beehive! Terror on the streets! Aliens have invaded and are running amok through Wellington! Be part of the news crew capturing the action on camera as the aliens threaten to destroy the planet unless the human race gives in to their outrageous demands. Will everyone survive or will they have their innards sucked out by the visitors from outer space?



For birthdays, some groups like to run around in a dark space, shooting each other with fake laser guns, or go indoors & climb giant imitation rock walls… or jump in a small water craft, and pit their strength against the Wellington weather in our unique harbour. Well, we’d like to give you another option!


For your birthday at Capital E your party will be given the chance to experience the fast–paced world of multiplayer LAN gaming, where you can adventure into alternate universes to test your gaming skills alongside your friends. You and your party guests, for two hours, will have exclusive access to our state-of-the-art digital multimedia suite which will transform into an amazing environment of high emotion and full-on energy.This exciting birthday experience just might have you on the edge of your seat, and will definitely be one to remember.
