In a first for New Zealand, tickets to opening night screenings of a feature film will be available free nationwide, so that as many Kiwis as possible can see An Inconvenient Sequel when it’s released on August 24th.

A decade after Al Gore’s film, An Inconvenient Truth, brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the follow-up that highlights the perils of unmitigated climate change and the need for more action.

Z Energy and Paramount Pictures have partnered to offer 3,000 free tickets on opening night at 24 cinemas across the country, with tickets becoming available Monday next week.

Z Chief Executive, Mike Bennetts, said Z’s free screenings are aimed at sparking a nationwide conversation about climate change.

“Z believes climate change is one of the greatest problems facing our world and we all have a role – companies, governments and individuals alike – to play in solving it, starting in our own backyards.

The film’s release comes at a critical time when New Zealanders still have a chance to make a difference by uniting to make both small changes and to call for action from business and government,” Mike said.

Paramount Pictures New Zealand Marketing Manager, Jo Maclaren, added Z’s support would help share the film’s critical message about the threat of climate change.

“Never before have this many free tickets to a film been made available to the New Zealand public on opening day. It’s great Z could make it happen on a film that has potential to bring climate change to the forefront of conversation and lead to action.”

The free tickets, cinema locations and session times will be listed on movietimes.nz/ais, which will be live from Monday August 7.
