Summer Movies Al Fresco

Thursday 12th December 2019-Saturday 25th January 2020

This summer we bring some relatively unknown jewels to the parks including a salute to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 flight.

Coinciding with Nelson Provincial Museum’s Our Moon exhibition we will set up in Trafalgar St for a space-themed screening. The 1902 16-minute Trip To The Moon and the 1964 First Men In The Moon are both acknowledged for ground-breaking special effects of their time.

Some of the 18 region-wide screenings will be shown with English subtitles turned on for the deaf, hard of hearing or English as a second language viewers (see schedule). Most parks are flat, grassy surfaces and have accessible toilets, except Fairfield Park.

Gather a group, a picnic, contemplate a blow-up couch or a beanbag and join us from 7:30 pm to play giant board games, enjoy the park and watch the region's glorious summer sunsets.

Movies usually start just after 9 pm.
