Outdoor Film Screening: 'What We Do in the Shadows'VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Feeling a little drained lately? We have a Halloween remedy for you! Join us for a socially-distanced outdoor screening of the vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows. Starring, written by, and directed by New Zealand phenoms Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnorak, Jojo Rabbit) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), this darkly hilarious mockumentary follows the nightly adventures of three out-of-date vampires in modern Wellington.
Kick off Halloween weekend by enjoying the film while socially distanced from your own lawn seating pod — we've outlined a series of eight-foot circles across our festival lawn, each of which can accommodate up to four people, giving you and your friends or family space to cozy up in. Bring your own lawn chairs, blankets, and snacks to enjoy during the film!
We're also offering a vampire-themed snack box with a variety of cinematic treats. Each box serves two people; purchase your box online along with your tickets.
