A Festival of Film under the Stars

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


Hawke’s Bay is welcoming its fourth 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 ‘Talk to me’, the powerful, real-life story of Ralph Waldo "Petey" Green, the outspoken ex-con who talked his way into becoming an iconic 1960's Washington DC radio personality to Jack McCoy’s surfing masterpiece ‘Blue Horizon’, the Yin & Yang story of world champion Andy Irons & 21st century soul surfer Dave “Rasta” Rastovich. There is 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:  the Hawke’s Bay Premiere of ‘Lovers of the arctic circle’; the Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn classic ‘Charade’; the King comes alive with his star-studded Las Vegas concert series ‘Elvis: That’s the way it is’; ‘Casino Royale’, the latest and highest grossing Bond movie ever; and the year’s most gripping tale, ‘The lives of others’, Oscar winner for best foreign film.

“Hawke’s Bay is climatically and culturally perfectly suited. The past three 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.”

The full programme, online-booking as well as movie and venue details are available on the Black Barn website (www.blackbarn.com).
