Summer Movies Al Fresco

Wed 6 Jan – Sat 6 Feb, 2021 - 9-11pm (movies start at dusk)

Wed 6 Jan – Sat 6 Feb, 2021 - 9-11pm (movies start at dusk)

Cost: $2 adult, $1 child

This summer we change things up a bit for the Summer Movies ki waho by screening some modern classics and continuing on later to connect with Waitangi Day.  We hope you enjoy the selection.

The Isel Park movies coincide with the Isel Twilight Market; come down early to sample some great food and browse the craft stalls.

Some of the 14 region-wide screenings will be shown with English subtitles turned on for the deaf, hard of hearing or English as a second language viewers (see schedule). Most of the parks are flat, grassy surfaces and have accessible toilets, except Fairfield Park. 

Gather a group, a picnic, perhaps put on your favourite onesie, and join us from 7:30 pm to play giant board games, enjoy the park and watch the region's glorious summer sunsets.  

Wrap up warm, and please pocket a torch to light your way home.  PLEASE pack it in, pack it out and keep our parks beautiful!

If the weather is marginal, text 'Is it on?' to 021 77 66 23 AFTER 7:30pm on the night.  Movies will not screen if it is raining.

*  Subtitles for the hearing impaired noted by an asterisk.
