Incredible Night at the Openair Film Festival

29 December 2004

Incredible Night at the Openair Film Festival Waiheke,

The Openair Cinema at Onetangi Road Vineyard was opening on Boxing Day. From the start the numbers picked up dramatically, resulting in over 450 people attending 'The Incredibles' last Tuesday. There were over 100 kids among the crowd, which enjoyed a spectacular outdoor experience. The patrons were well prepared: they brought seatings of all sorts with them, from deckchairs, beach chairs, rugs to extra large beanbags. The venue at Onetangi Road Vineyard is well sheltered from winds of all directions, and the screening never suffered from the strong northeasterly wind.

"We were blown away by the way people were prepared for the night out," said Urs Bauer, organizer of the event, "and the feedback from the crowd was very encouraging. It's great to see, that people don't mind too much about the forecasts - and take the chance to experience movies under the stars."

The season goes on with some great movies over the coming weekend until Sunday, 9 January. Then the screen will be moved to the Viaduct Harbour for its second season in the heart of Auckland City from 13 January to 27 February 2005.

Tickets prices are for the Waiheke screenings are as following: Adults ($10), Senior Citizen / Students with ID ($8), Kids under 12 ($5). You can buy them at Onetangi Road Vineyard, Family Barrow Oneroa, Tourism Auckland Offices (Oneroa and Matiatia) and at the door (cash only), which opens at 7pm.

Bring your own rugs, cushions, deck chairs and sleeping bags. There are snacks, ice-cream, soft-drinks, coffee, wine and beer on sale. No BYO alcohol is allowed.
