We are monitoring advice from the Ministry of Health and will provide further updates and advice around rescheduling of Auckland Live’s Summer in the Square in due course.
Kick back and enjoy a free screening of The Circus, part of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s outdoor cinema line-up this summer in Aotea Square. Come early to secure your spot, bring a picnic rug, have a bite to eat, and catch the pre-movie entertainment.
The Little Tramp is hired by a circus and soon becomes the main attraction when his comedic blunders drive the crowd wild. Having fallen in love with the ringmaster’s daughter, he doesn’t even realize he is the show’s main feature. In this high-flying comedy, we are quickly caught up in Chaplin’s whirlwind of gags, where even the acrobats and clowns watch his show-stopping stunts from the sidelines.
Parents, please don't drop off or leave your children unsupervised at this event. Please note you cannot BYO alcohol to Summer in the Square. The Terrace Café will be open and selling both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as tasty eats and treats.
This film screening is part of the Summer in the Square Circus Weekend! Be sure to check out what else is on.
