Food, fun & flicks


The South Island’s inaugural event last year proved such a hit that Christchurch city-goers have the opportunity again to watch the latest new releases by starlight. Held at Rauora Park, it’s so much more than movies, with an exciting festival programme of food, fun and flicks.

With 10 events happening at Christchurch’s Rauora Park, the festival vibes will be in full swing every weekend with an array of alternative entertainment, live music and DJ performances before the latest and greatest feature films light up the big screen.
Punters have no need to feel lonesome on their night out, as film fanatics and doggy owners are invited to bring their furry friends to any screening.

This year’s programme is an exciting mix of box office hits and critically acclaimed titles including A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Aquaman and Bumblebee, while a special selection of family friendly titles, including How to train your Dragon 2, Mary Poppins Returns and Instant Family will ensure there is something for everyone.

Haagen Dazs will be providing ice cream scoops for film loving troops. Fear not, the refreshments are taken care of too thanks to national partners Kaiser Beer and Giesen Wines. Aperol Spritz will also be tickling Christchurch movie-goers’ taste buds.


Tickets start at $14 and are on sale now via
