The films playing at Aotea Square’s free outdoor cinema


Films in the Square delivers an outdoor cinema experience at Auckland’s Aotea Square every Thursday and Sunday this summer. Set on the Auckland Live Digital Stage, the line-up’s been programmed in partnership with “the crème de la crème of film and cinema”—New Zealand International Film FestivalDoc EdgeScreenies and Show Me Shorts Film Festival.

From the official press release: Every Thursday night there will be screenings of a selection of cinematic classics and the latest short, with the kiddies covered too on selected Sunday mornings in January. To make your relaxin’ Sunday arvos become that little bit sweeter, we’ll be screening a drool-inducing line-up of documentary greats.

Proudly part of Tāmaki Makaurau’s outdoor cinema line-up this summer in Aotea Square, grab the whānau, picnic rug and ready, set, action!
