Head to Aotea Square and enjoy a free screening of The Sapphires, part of Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau’s outdoor summer cinema line-up in Aotea Square. Come early to secure your spot, bring a picnic rug, have a bite to eat, and catch the pre-movie entertainment.
This musical comedy film, based on a stage play, is set in 1968 and follows four Yorta Yorta Indigenous Australian women who form music group The Sapphires. Discovered by a talent scout, they travel to Vietnam to sing for US troops, and they learn about love, friendship and war.
Before the movie starts, arrive a little earlier at 6.15pm to see some inspiring Kiwi musicians in the new short film, We Rock!.
