The best open air cinemas
The five best outdoor cinemas in Auckland to check out.
There has been something rather refreshing this summer with the boom in outdoor cinemas. But as the season officially draws to a close this week, so too do the open air cinemas dotted across the city. Check these cinemas out before they check out.
Ben & Jerry’s Open Air Cinema - Western Springs
Stretch out on a blanket or hire a bean lounger and catch some of the latest flicks on offer. Chill out before the movie starts with food and drink from the licensed bar, and of course, all the icecream you can eat!
Smales Farm - Takapuna
The revitalised Smales Farmcentre is ending their Outdoor Cinema summer session on a high note this weekend - with Jumanji. A games area with giant wooden games and a jungle themed bouncy castle will keep the kids entertained before the movie starts.
Movies in Parks - Throughout Auckland
Pack a picnic and head down to your local park, because there’s bound to be one nearby. Parents can revisit their wn childhoods with Grease and Mary Poppins, and the wee ones can get the likes of Moana and Zootopia.
Silo Cinemas - Downtown
Silo Park knows how to put on a good show. Breathe in the salt air and snuggle up to watch classics like Groundhog Day, Thelma and Louise and Amy until the end of March, for free.
Movies Under The Stars - Howick
East Auckland - this one is for you. The Uxbridge Arts and Culture Centre in Mellons Bay is showing classic films under the stars, with Night at the Museum on March 12. BYO bean bag and blanket and snuggle in.
