Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Celebrate summer with the perfect pairing of live music and an outdoor movie in a series of four events we call Rhythm and Reels running throughout February. Fun free entertainment for the whole family!

This event sees the introduction of movies on an LED screen to the Rhythm and Reels series which means we can start the movie while it's still daylight. To make the most of this opportunity we are going to make it a double header with the first movie - The Lion King starting at 4pm followed by some live entertainment from Wellington Batucada before the second movie (Jumanji) will screen at approximately 6:30pm.

Movie 1: The Lion King (1994) rated G, 89 minutes
movie 2: Jumanji (1995) rated PG, 104 minutes

Wellington Batucada will be keeping you enthralled with their performance in-between moives. Wellington Batu-what now? Batucada is the traditional samba music played by large percussion groups in Brazil’s carnival parades. Wellington Batucada looks to emulate this tradition and brings Brazilian samba music and dance to Kiwi audiences.

We are also lucky to have our friends from House of Travel Lower Hutt onsite handing out some movie goodies and a chance to enter a competition to win an amazing holiday.

Bring the family, a rug and some warm clothes down to the reserve for the second event in the Rhythm and Reels series. Get there early as space and car parking is limited in for this location.

A limited selection of food and beverage will be available onsite but picnics are welcome! And for everyone's viewing pleasure please bring only rugs, low chairs or bean bags. No dogs allowed.

*Come along earlier and enjoy a great day out in Eastbourne with the best of two events. Local Wild Food Challenge is taking place in the park on the same day finishing with Rhythm and Reels.
