Films by Starlight

16 February 2010

Put on your red shoes and join the crowds at the Botanic Garden Dell this Thursday evening (18.02.10) as they cheer Dorothy home to Kansas at a free outdoor screening of Hollywood classic, The Wizard of Oz (PG).

Hosted by Cuba St Carnival, and part of our NZCT Summer City festival, the Films by Starlight series has been drawing crowds to the Dell, which is tucked just behind the Begonia House at the Rose Garden, throughout February.

The Hawthorn Lounge is also there to help you wine and dine with a fully licensed bar and barbeque.

You might need to change into your dancing shoes for the next Thursday's (25.02.10) movie Soul Power (PG). It documents the three-day concert that took place in the lead-up to the Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman fight in Zaire in 1974.

Big names such as BB King and James Brown feature in the film - expect an amazing atmosphere at the Dell that night. Both films take place at around 8.30pm, or when dusk falls.
