Silo Cinemas Double Feature – Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory | The Goonies

Friday 12th April | 6:30pm | Silo Park

To celebrate the very last cinema night of a highly successful season of Silo Cinema, while also bidding a bitter sweet farewell to Summer, the good people at Silo Park are putting on a double feature this Friday. As usual, the films will be projected onto the might Silo 7 at this free event.

First up at 6:30pm is Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory (the time-honoured and arguably trippier 1971 Gene Wilder version). Perfect if you’ve got kids who’d like to have a slice of the whole outdoor cinema experience and aren’t too freaked out by that tunnel scene.

After that there’ll be a short break to get yourself something refreshing from the pop up bar and then at 9pm 80’s cult classic The Goonies is on.

Rug up, bring a picnic blanket and a hot water bottle. Grab some dinner at the market, open from 5pm, and enjoy a night under the stars before we’re all forced in Winter hibernation. Right now the weather forecast for Friday is looking like the highlight of the week too.

Big shout outs to the Silo Park team for not only putting on a great free weekly event for the summer, but adding something integral to the atmosphere and cultural landscape of downtown Auckland. Also congratulations to creative team behind The Wynyard Quarter who have just won a top landscape architecture award for the use of colour in the waterfront space.
