Silo Cinema presents Spellbound.
Come and enjoy open air movies as Silo Park projects films for all ages onto the side of the iconic Silo7 in Silo Park.
Silo Cinema presents Spellbound this week. As always the film will be complimented by the Silo Night Market where you’ll be able to grab dinner from an eclectic array of street food style stalls, browse a variety of pop-up clothing stores and craftmakers, get your haircut, and of course toast the end of the week at the Silo Park Bar. This December all profits from the sale of popcorn will be given to the Auckland City Mission. Make sure you take time to come and check out the Auckland City Mission Angel Tree next to Silo 7 as well. Stand under the branches, buy a pair of angel wings and become an angel somebody in need this Christmas.
Markets from 5pm. Film from 9pm.
Spellbound: This documentary follows 8 teens and pre-teens as they work their way toward the finals of the Scipps Howard national spelling bee championship in Washington D.C. All work quite hard and practice daily, first having to win their regional championship before they can move on. Interviews include the parents and teachers who are working with them. The competitors not only work hard to get to the finals but face tremendous pressure as the original group of 250 competitors is whittled down and the words they must spell get ever more difficult.
