Sunset Cinema:
First Fridays will continue to be awesome in 2019!

As in 2018, in 2019 the doors open each night from 7.00pm, movies start at 7.30pm.

We're on to our last film for 2018, and we’ve just got the big list of choices for 2019!

We'll be hand-selecting 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!

So sign up now for 2019!

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 available as well. Check out the options.

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