What’s better than enjoying a movie in one of Auckland’s gorgeous parks? Doing it with a freshly-made cuppa from The Coffee Guy! That’s why we decided to get behind Auckland Council’s Movies in Parks events in 2011.

This is Movies in Parks’ fourth consecutive year but with a few changes following the establishment of the Auckland Council. The two separate series previously run by Auckland City Council and North Shore City Council were amalgamated into one massive programme of 24 events – with The Coffee Guy behind them all.

If you enjoy a good movie, there’ll no doubt be something of interest in the line up. There are two parts to the series. Mercury Energy Movies by Moonlight includes a wide variety of blockbusters, such as Sherlock Homes, Julie and Julia, and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. A Taste of Kiwi showcases home-grown talent, such as Boy, The Lovely Bones and Avatar.

Go to the Movies in Parks website to see a full listing of the events on offer.
