New Zealand's Favourite Drive-in Outdoor Cinemas

Drive-in outdoor cinema

Relive the 60's vibe that drove almost every teen crazy to experience! Rather than the high tech embellished (and expensive) modern-day cinematic atmosphere! Drive your cheap car hire to experience the best outdoor cinemas in New Zealand.

Nothing can beat the relaxed, stripped back ambiance of watching a movie under the stars or in the comfort and privacy of your own car, perhaps put the two together and watch the movie on top of your bonnet wrapped up in a blanket or chuck a mattress at the back of your pick up truck and park backwards. These are only a portion of things you can do to tailor your experience and the best part is it won't cost you the world because that's what the Vroom team do… help you find reliable car rental fast and great 'value for money' things to do via your car hire.

Auckland it seems is home to more than 4 outdoor cinemas but the stand out frontrunner in coolness and innovation is Silo Park. With a weekly movie, almost every Friday just pack up the rental car with a picnic and rug to sit under the stars and enjoy a good movie. Admission is free and there are stalls with food and games for children to wander around. Be sure to take your Auckland car hire out to see all the action. Nothing beats a free movie and good company in a romantic setting on a warm summers night.

Wellington is also getting in on the action and you can get your rental car involved too. Firefly cinema is Wellington's first Drive-in cinema and at around $35 a vehicle that goes to raise money for the charity who wouldn't want to get in on the action.  You can use the money you save in booking with VroomVroomVroom and getting a car rental to put towards your contribution to charity. Trentham racecourse is the place to be this summer, so take the rental car along for a great night out.

Hamilton Garden's Arts Festival held in Mid February is another chance to catch a free movie outdoors as they play a collection of cult and art-house films to celebrate the occasion. That's not all that's available though, plays are often performed and there is something happening every day in one garden or another. With plenty of parking for your rental car there is no reason to miss out on the fun. If you feel like leaving your hire car at the hotel then you could also catch a bus to the festival. The choice is all yours and you are sure to be in for a treat.
