The 11th Hour – free outdoor movie

From 7.45 pm on 29 March the bells of Christchurch Cathedral will ring out across the city heralding the approach of Earth Hour. At 8 pm Mayor Bob Parker will throw the switch on the lights in Cathedral Square, marking the arrival of Earth Hour. This will be followed by a free public screening of the 11th Hour, narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio.

“This film describes humanity’s 11th hour, the last moment when change is possible, exploring how we have arrived at this moment, how we live, how we impact the earth's ecosystems, and what we can do to change our course.”
Running time 91 minutes


The city is being urged to turn out its lights, take appliances off standby and head down to Cathedral Square to show support for Earth Hour.

Bring a seat, warm clothes and some popcorn. Learn how to save money and the planet from 7pm in Cathedral Square.

Leave making a promise to take action – making it more than just an hour – believing that what we do today can make a difference for tomorrow.

Car parking – Oxford Terrace and Farmers Building

In the case of bad weather the event will still go ahead and The 11th Hour will be screened inside the Cathedral.
