$5 Movie Event for South Taranaki

$5 Movie Event for South Taranaki

South Taranaki’s ‘Family Fun at the Movies’ returns this year to both Opunake and Hawera.

South Taranaki District Council events co-ordinator Jody Bloor says ‘Family Fun at the Movies’ is an awesome event, giving people the opportunity to see films at a much discounted price of $5.

“It’s a great chance for those who may have missed these popular movies - or maybe for those bigger families who sometimes don’t get to go together due to cost,” says Jody.

‘Family Fun at the Movies’ will be held at Everybody’s Theatre in Opunake on Sunday 13 August with the movie Beauty and the Beast (PG) in 2D. The Hawera Cinemas event will be on Sunday 27 August with two movie screenings, Beauty and the Beast (PG) and Spider-Man Homecoming (M), both in 2D.

“The local theatres are always so supportive of this event and sponsor it by offering us cheaper ticket prices,” she says. “Hawera Cinemas has been getting behind this for several years and it’s great to have Everybody’s Theatre on board too!”

Tickets for the Opunake event are available from Opunake LibraryPlus and tickets for the Hawera event go on sale today (Thursday 27 July) from TSB Hub.
