A Festival of Film under the Stars
The planning is already in full swing for the 18th OpenAir Cinema season starting on 27 December 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 ‘Little Women' as well as ‘Ford v Ferrari’; 'Knives Out'; ‘The Gentlemen' and the marvellous movie-going experiences of ‘Judy'; 'The Post' and 'Mary: Queen of Scots'.
The 21/22 season will run over nine nights from 27 - 30 December 2021 and from 2 – 6 January 2022.
“Hawke’s Bay is climatically and culturally perfectly suited. The past fourteen seasons have proven extremely popular with locals and visitors alike. 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, Shapeshifters 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 first and up until December 24.
The full programme, the print-your-own-ticket facility as well as movie and venue details will be available on the Black Barn website from end of November onwards.
