Feel like a FREE movie under the stars?

The 19th series of Movies in Parks returns this summer with a smaller, budget conscious showing.

Fourteen movies will screen in Auckland Council parks from February to March 2021 – so bring friends and whānau for another magical season.

From recent releases to old favourites, we’re putting on a movie night for the whole neighbourhood.
