Silo Park

Silo Park is where you want to land on your Friday evening. Enjoy the sunset with dinner from one of our top-notch food trucks, and finish up your night lounging on the grass for a movie, projected on Silo 7 from 9pm.

On Friday 25 January, Auckland Anniversary Weekend, we'll be screening a Kiwi classic - Whale Rider. Set in the East Coast town of Whāngārā, Whale Rider tells the tale of a young Māori girl, Pai, who challenges tradition and embraces the past in order to find the strength to lead her people forward.

Directed and written by Niki Caro, the film is based on Witi Ihimaera's novel The Whale Rider. Coupling a specific sense of place and culture with a universal coming-of-age story, Whale Rider became one of the most successful and acclaimed New Zealand films released internationally.

Rating PG - Parental Guidance

Event starts at 5.00pm with food and drinks. Movie screening starts at 9.00pm. It gets a little chilly during the movie so remember your jacket!

Silo Cinema is, as always, free!
