Popular Auckland cinemas are running a Retro Showcase from March 1 until June 26, which will be showing classic and all-time favourite films.
EVENT Cinemas' Retro Showcase will show 13 films, over 17 weeks from March 1 to June 26, with a nostalgic price tag of just $10 an adult ticket or student and $6 for seniors and children.
Some of the classic films you can enjoy will be “Singing in the Rain”, “Rocky”, “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” and “Black Narcissus”.
EVENT’s Programming Executive, Andy Miller, says presenting a season like this is the beauty of being a company that owns silver screens.
“People have always been driven to theatres for cinema with a capital C and we want to bring back some of the gems and magic that people remember, the classics, the movies they can take their mums to or introduce their kids to on the big screen. These movies are the reason people love cinema, and for many the Retro Showcase is going to be their first chance to experience these amazing movies on a the big screen.”
The movies, which will be presented for the first time in the country using the latest in pristine digital projection and silver screens, will be shown at the following cinemas:
EVENT Cinemas in Queen St, Albany, Newmarket, Highland Park, Westcity and Westgate. They will rotate through the centres showing every Sunday and will be repeated again on a Monday evening and Thursday morning.
