Black Barn OpenAir Cinema – A Festival of Film under the Stars


Hawke’s Bay is welcoming its third OpenAir Cinema with a tantalising and varied line-up of movies starting on December 27th at Black Barn Vineyards in Havelock North. The Festival Organisers, Doris and Urs Blum, have again prepared a cinematic smorgasbord to enthral film enthusiasts under the stars. From the New Zealand Premiere of ‘The Sixth Element’, a film that takes the viewer on an incredible journey with big surf legend Ross Clarke-Jones to one of the most sensual films of the year, ‘The White Masai’, the amazingly true romantic adventure of a Swiss woman who marries a handsome Masai warrior and settles in the Kenyan bush. There’s plenty of variety to more than satisfy a broad range of film appetites.

The season runs over nine nights from December 27th to 30th and from January 02nd to 6th. “We have selected the programme carefully”, says Doris. “Each film is a gem of its genre and will make the movie-goers heart sing”. Amongst the other films shown are: ‘Casablanca’, the ultimate classic movie, ‘Sione’s Wedding’, New Zealand’s award-winning romantic comedy, ’Deep Blue’, a visual feast about the beauty and mysteries of the world’s oceans and ‘Match Point’, the gripping tale of love, lust and lies with stunning young talented actress Scarlett Johansson.

“Hawke’s Bay is climatically and culturally perfectly suited. The past two season have proven extremely successful as everybody loves the experience of watching movies on a big screen nestled in the picturesque vineyard setting of the amphitheatre.”

Urs adds, “The amphitheatre was purpose built for performances and has quickly gained a reputation as one of New Zealand’s finest out-door venues. It has great acoustics, good sight lines, the best of technology installed, and offers views to die for. Moviegoers can relax on grassed terraces, listen to the music, sip a glass of wine with friends, enjoy a nibble or bring their own picnic and watch the sun set over Hawke’s Bay. It is the ultimate outdoor experience: great films, great sound, great food and great company under the stars.”
