Sunset Cinema: Friday nights are awesome in 2017!

In 2017, we’re showing top international art-house films as well as local ones. That’s because we’ve joined the New Zealand Federation of Film Societies, giving us access to a fantastic range of international and local films.

We've hand-selected a powerful mix of drama, comedy and documentary movies, from around the world and right here in Aotearoa, and we're looking forward to a whole year of exhilarating, thought-provoking and riotously funny stories that Wairarapa film-fans can all share together!

We are offering memberships that get you entry into all 11 films shown over the course of the year – for a ridiculously good price. A bit tentative? We've got a 3 movie sampler and monthly taster tickets available on the door as well. Check out the options.

The world’s best art-house films – right here in Carterton!
