Black Barn OpenAir Cinema - A festival of film under the stars.

Hawke’s Bay is in full planning mode for its ninth OpenAir Cinema season. The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour will be back with its selection of amazing outdoor and extreme sport shorts. Whilst the rest of the film line-up is still being finalised, there will be plenty of variety to satisfy a broad range of movie appetites. The highlights of the last season were the sell-out screening of ‘Midnight in Paris’ and the marvellous movie going experiences of ‘Beginners’, ‘Billy T: Te Movie’ and the French comedy ‘Heartbreaker’.

“Hawke’s Bay is climatically and culturally perfectly suited. The past eight seasons have proven extremely successful. 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 and the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour.

The amphitheatre has great acoustics, good sight lines, the best of technology installed (with a brand new screen and an even more powerful projector for 2012/2013), and offers views over Hawke’s Bay that are to die for.

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 sun set over Hawke’s Bay. It is the ultimate outdoor experience: great films, great sound, great food, and great company under the stars.”

Patrons are able to print their own tickets from the website - up to 5pm on the night.

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 mid-November onwards.
