Discounted movie fun for the whole family

Thursday, August 15, 2019

South Taranaki’s ‘Family Fun at the Movies’ returns this year to both Ōpūnake and Hāwera.

South Taranaki District Council Tourism Team Leader Tarin Hunt says ‘Family Fun at the Movies’ is an awesome event, giving people the opportunity to see films at a much discounted price.

“It’s a great chance for those who may have missed these popular movies - or maybe for those bigger families who sometimes don’t get to go together due to cost,” says Tarin.

‘Family Fun at the Movies’ will be held at Everybody’s Theatre in Opunake on Sunday 25 August at 1pm with The Lion King (PG) for only $5 a ticket.

Hāwera Cinemas event will be on Sunday 8 September with two movie screenings, Toy Story 4 (G) in the morning and Avengers Endgame (PG) in the afternoon, both in 2D, for $7.50 a ticket.

“The local theatres are always so supportive of this event and sponsor it by offering us cheaper ticket prices,” she says. “Hāwera Cinemas and Everybody’s Theatre have been getting behind this for several years!”

Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a person over 14-years old.

Tickets for both events are now on sale from the South Taranaki i-SITE Visitor Centre and the Ōpūnake LibraryPlus (for the Everybody’s Theatre).
