With a 98% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, this is a film you don’t want to miss.

Say goodbye to the work week, and hello to the weekend! We’ve got you covered down at Silo Park to ease you into a very musical Friday night.

In Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster, paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) and mathematician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) are among a select group chosen to tour an island theme park populated by dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA. While the park's mastermind, billionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough), assures everyone that the facility is safe, they find out otherwise when various ferocious predators break free and go on the hunt!

This is an absolute classic and one not to be missed on the big screen. Don’t forget to bring something comfy to sit on and a blanket because it does get a bit chilly later in the night!

Rated PG13 - Some scenes may scare younger viewers

Event starts at 5.00pm with food and drinks. Movie screening starts at 9.00pm.

Silo Park is where you want to land on your Friday evening. Enjoy the sunset with dinner from one of our top notch food trucks, and finish up your night lounging on the grass for a movie, projected on the silo from 9pm.

On Friday 4 January, our favourite family of superheroes are taking the big screen. It’s been 14 years since the release of the Disney / Pixar smash hit, The Incredibles, but this time the roles have reserved with mum Helen taking the main stage. Bob is now a stay-at-home dad (it’s 2018 you see) and is trying to juggle looking after kids and saving the world from villains.

The Incredibles 2 is a family classic for little, and big, kids alike. Don’t forget your blanket or rug, and something comfy to sit on.

Into the Underworld

Into the Underworld

3.jpg

Inside Silo 6, Silo Park

Beneath the banality of Auckland’s sprawling suburbia, there lies an ancient subterranean world.

Into the Underworld / Ngā Mahi Rarowhenua is an exhibition by artist Chirag Jindal in collaboration with speleologist Peter Crossley and composer Peter Hobbs, and follows 3 years of 3D mapping ancient Lava Caves under the streets of Mount Albert, Three Kings, Mount Eden, Mangere and One Tree Hill. 

The caves were formed out of local volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago, but without any legal framework during the 20th century, many of the discovered sites have been lost, destroyed, or become a hidden layer beneath the built environment. More than 200 cave entrances have been documented across the isthmus, often behind streetfront garages, private backyards or under roadside manholes, with new sites still being uncovered today.

For 3 weeks in September, the caves will be presented for a second showing in an exhibition of immersive panoramic scans and moving images, revealing the sublime and uncanny narrative of the city’s volcanic underground.

A newly-recorded ambient score composed by award-winning sound artist and musician Peter Hobbs will accompany the work. The piece was recorded deep in a lava cave beneath the Te Tātua-a-Riukiuta (Three Kings) with musicians Maxine Cunliffe on Cello and Charmian Keay on Violin.

The exhibition will also feature screenings of "Meet Peter," a 2017 documentary by filmmaker Gemma Duncan on Peter and his life documenting over 200 caves across the city. Through artful cinematography, the film accounts the derelict state of these forgotten sites, but frames them within the beauty of their fossilised lava flows.

OPENING NIGHT
Join us to celebrate the opening preview with drinks and nibbles on Saturday the 8th of September. RSVP is essential. Follow the link - https://www.facebook.com/events/437827540073320/

DAILY HOURS
The exhibition will be open from Midday to 9pm daily from Sunday 9th September - Monday 1st October @ Silo Park, Wynyard Quarter. 

ADMISSION
Into The Underworld is an independent exhibition created and run by the artist and a team of volunteers, and partially funded by local governments and in-kind sponsors. The entry cost is limited to $PWYW ( i.e. Pay What You Want, $5-$20).

EVENTS
A final schedule of events occurring throughout the exhibition will be available here and on the website on or before the 8th of September.

Seeing Sound - A contemporary dance site specific performance

IMG_4122.jpg

Inside Silo 6, Silo Park

Trip Stumble Fall have searched out yet another site within Auckland City to dance in. The silos!
Located down by the (now what is) new flash waterfront. The silos are part of the inner-city furniture and have always been there watching container ships come and go, fisherman dock and unload their hoard.
We will climb into them and investigate their scaps. Taking this exploration to a vibrational level, and playing with the "cylinder" how it carries sound and what the dancing body "sounds" like.
Unlike the usual proscenium theatre outlook for the audience, you will be able to roam around the silo spaces and observe the dance work from many different perspectives.

Showing times:
June 30th 2018
6pm | 7pm | 8pm 

Tickets available June 1st at dashtickets.co.nz

Opening times: 11am - 5pm

Acts of Passage addresses the body in its cathartic
function: by performing small rituals and cleansing
gestures artists trigger memory to reconcile history and
the now through physical action. The exhibition includes
immersive video installations and scheduled live
performances that showcase the most exciting
manifestations of the practice from around the world
including Africa, Aotearoa, Brazil, the Pacific, and Peru.
