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!

The first DVD Swap night will be held in conjunction with our May 5th screening. All the details are here.

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!
