Silo Cinema: Crazy Rich Asians
Round off the first official working week of 2020 with the rom-com hit.
The time of year has come to put your Netflix account on hold and venture outdoors to get your motion picture fix. Silo Park has unveiled the program for its ninth season with a jam-packed schedule of films, food markets and free live entertainment taking place under the stars at the waterfront community space.
The lineup of films to screen on the former petrochemical silos includes a selection of freshly released blockbusters and timeless classics. Dust off your picnic rug and head down early to nab a spot for thought-provoking documentary 2040, New Zealand Film Festival favourite The Farewell, classic fairy tale The Princess Bride or Elton John musical biopic Rocketman.
Rounding off the first official working week of 2020 will be 2018 rom-com hit, Crazy Rich Asians. The contemporary film is based on the global bestseller of the same name by Singaporean novelist Kevin Kwan. Notably, one of the first films by a major Hollywood studio to feature a majority cast of Asian descent in a modern setting, it follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu to Singapore to meet her boyfriend's family. She is shaken up when she learns that he belongs to one of the richest families in the country.
Pop down early to get a good spot and enjoy the DJ, food trucks and Silo Bar from 5pm. The film will hit the silo from 9pm. Entry is free and all Silo Park activities are dependent on good weather, so check the Silo website for any updates.
