Black Barn OpenAir Cinema

Black Barn OpenAir Cinema

A Festival of Film under the Stars.

Hawke’s Bay is in full planning mode for its 14th OpenAir Cinema season starting on 26 December 2017 at Black Barn Vineyards in Havelock North. Whilst the film line-up is still being finalised, there will be plenty of variety to satisfy a broad range of movie appetites.

The crowd pleasers of the last season were the sold-out screening of ‘The Wilderpeople' as well as ‘Chasing Great’, Brooklyn’, ‘The Last Waltz’ and the marvelous movie-going experiences of ‘She’s funny that way’ and ‘The Dressmaker’'.

The 17/18 season starts a day earlier than usual, but it still runs over nine nights from 26 - 30 December, 2017 and 2 – 5 January, 2018.

“Hawke’s Bay is climatically and culturally perfectly suited. The past eleven seasons have proven extremely successful. Patrons love the experience of watching movies on a big screen nestled in the picturesque vineyard setting of the Black Barn amphitheatre.” Urs Blum, the event director, states.

“The amphitheatre is purpose-built for performances and has quickly gained a reputation as one of New Zealand’s finest out-door venues, welcoming international performers such as Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Dame Malvina Major, and big acts such as Fat Freddy’s Drop and the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour.

The amphitheatre has great acoustics; good sight lines; the best of technology installed and offers magic views over the Hawke's Bay Plains.

Moviegoers can relax on grassed terraces, sipping a glass of wine with friends, enjoying a nibble from the onsite caterers or bringing their own picnic whilst watching the sunset over Hawke’s Bay. It is the ultimate outdoor experience: great movies, great picture quality, great sound, great food, and great company - all under the stars.”

Patrons are able to print their own tickets from the website - up to 5pm on the night. Gift tickets are an ideal Christmas present. They are valid for any movie and are available online very soon and up until December 24.
