A selection of public events
Motat Drive-In Movies
The Drive-In by MOTAT is back with an unforgetable experience on Friday and Saturday nights for you to enjoy with the family or friends, with food trucks on site and all the novelty of watching a movie in the country's largest outddor screen from the comfort of your own car.
The 2020 winter season runs on weekends from June to August with 14 movies.
Auckland Council Movies in Parks
In 2007 Openair Cinema held its first free event together with the Auckland City Council at Victoria Park with a two-night short film festival. This was the stepping stone for the Auckland Council ‘Movies In Parks’ series which since 2008 have become one of the summer landmark events of the Auckland Region.
The 2021 summer season runs a shorter season due to Covid-19 from February to March with 14 free movies.
Sounds on Screen
Under the brand ‘Sounds On Screen’ we launched the first Music Documentary Film Festival in New Zealand in 2017. This is a yearly event taking place at the Warkworth Town Hall at Queens Birthday Weekend. It comprises national and international entries and its aim is to motivate people of all ages to pursue music as professional art, as hobby or simply as listeners “because it gives us a much needed balance to the busy live”.
