About Firefly Cinemas
Firefly Cinemas is New Zealand’s Premier Drive-In Cinema!
Founded in Wellington in November 2013, Firefly Cinemas held a very successful and buzzing first summer season with over 12,000 people attending our last two summer sessions.
Now based in Ashburton, Canterbury as of May 2020 we are looking forward to continuing on the entertainment and drive in cinema experience.
Pull your car up, for revival of 60s drive-in cinema. With our massive 40ft screen and FM audio transmission you can forget all cinematic etiquette and scrunch your chippy packets, predict the ending outloud, and smooch to your heart’s content from the privacy and comfort of your own car!
Don’t want to sit in the car? Bring a beanbag, camping chair or blanket, and enjoy a picnic under the stars.
We also have a strong focus on supporting New Zealand Film and the Wellington Film Culture. As well as supporting the short film fraternity by screening emerging filmmaker’s and student’s films prior to feature screenings, we also have a lot of New Zealand feature films on our schedule.
We want all of New Zealand to have the opportunity to experience an Outdoor Drive-In movie experience, so hopefully we will be coming to a town near you very soon.
For film enthusiasts, for couples, for friends, for families, for the community
