Summer is calling, and Auckland Council’s Movies in Parks is back in 2024!

As the sun goes down, gather with friends and whānau for a picnic and FREE movie under the stars.

From Barbie to The Super Mario Bros. Movie, enjoy animated kids flicks and recent blockbusters. We’re putting on a magical movie night for the whole neighbourhood! Make the most of your evening and come early for family-friendly pre-movie entertainment. Pack a picnic rug and basket from home or grab a bite from the food trucks on site — and don’t forget to bring warm clothes for later.

All movies have closed captions. We can’t wait to see you there!

If an event is cancelled due to rain, we’ll try for an alternative date - so stay posted. Check back here or follow our Facebook page to get the latest updates and ways to make the most of each event.
