HUTT CITY COUNCIL NEWS RELEASE

7 February 2013


Films by Starlight programme heads to Wainuiomata

Local residents in Wainuiomata will be able to head to the Queen Street Reserve on Saturday night for the second instalment of Hutt City Council’s Films by Starlight programme.

Popular cult-classic “The Blues Brothers” will screen, free from dusk (around 9pm).

With scores of car crashes, too many extras to count, and epic dance numbers to toe-tapping tunes — cult musical comedy “The Blues Brothers” has it all. So deck yourself out in a sharp suit, skinny tie and Ray-Bans, and join Jake and Elwood Blues, as they put together the old band to save the Catholic home where they were raised.

Bring along your outdoor chairs, rug and picnic and make a night of it. However, the movie is a smoke and alcohol free event.

The Blues Brothers is rated R and runs for 2hrs 13 minutes.

The Movies by Starlight sessions continue in Hutt City every Saturday night until 23 February. The schedule is:

Saturday 9 February – The Blues Brothers – Queen St Reserve, Wainuiomata.

Saturday 16 February – Raiders of the Lost Ark – Williams Park, Days Bay.

(PG13 | 1 hour 55minutes)

Saturday 23 February – Sione’s Wedding – Fraser Park, Taita

(PG | 1 hour 37 minutes)
