Waimarino and Tourism BOP are proud sponsors of the outdoor cinema screening of Pete's Dragon (2016) at McLaren Falls Park.

Located on the Top Flat at McLarens falls park, this free family-friendly event will be an afternoon of fun and adventure followed by the outdoor cinema at dark put on by Night Owl Cinema.

From 3pm join us in the park for music, food, Dragons Den and adventure activities on the lake with Waimarino. Movie screens at dark at approximately 8pm.

A reimagining of Disney's cherished family film, "Pete's Dragon" is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales... until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley).

Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliott. And from Pete's descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham's stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

Rated PG.

A massive thank you to Tauranga City Council, Bay Hopper, Tourism BOP and Waimarino for their support for the event.
