Silver screen lights up Victoria Park

Silver screen lights up Victoria Park

Aucklanders are invited to bring a bean bag and some popcorn to Victoria Park on 16 and 17 March to enjoy some great free Kiwi entertainment under the stars.

Following the success of the Open Air Cinema Urs Bauer is back for two nights only, projecting ten New Zealand short films onto a giant inflatable screen.

The selection of short films, provided by the New Zealand Film Commission, will show at the park on both nights from 8.30pm to 10.30pm.

Multiple award winner and Oscar nominee Two Cars, One Night, directed by Taika Waititi, is one of the films being featured.

The free screening, which is part of Auckland City’s ‘Living Room’ series, was scheduled to take place in December last year but was postponed due to bad weather.

Useful tips for parking in the area can be found at www.aucklandcity.govt/parking.

Auckland City’s website has more information on the Living Room happenings currently taking place around the CBD, as well as details on the Living Room competition giving Aucklanders the chance to win a $500 Shop Till You Drop voucher, courtesy of Heart of the City.

Living Room is a pilot project that is part of the Auckland’s CBD Into the future strategy, which aims to transform Auckland’s CBD into one of the worlds most vibrant and dynamic business and cultural centres.

The Living Room series is funded from the CBD targeted rate and its aim is to entice people to get out of the house and experience the CBD in a new way.

Please note the rain date for the free Open Air NZ Short Films is 18 March.
