Movie Screening: SIX60: Till the Lights Go Out

From humble beginnings they became the first and only Kiwi act to headline New Zealand’s biggest stadium, which is normally reserved for the world’s mega-stars. Now, the five-piece New Zealand band SIX60 must reconcile ambition and creative vulnerability in order to prove they are worthy of their success.

Featuring all their greatest hits, Julia Parnell’s SIX60: Till the Lights Go Out is a true Kiwi story that will leave cinema audiences feeling closer to the band than ever before. 

Movie is rated M and contains clips of flashing lights.

Light refreshments will be provided. Photographic ID will be required for a complementary glass of wine or beer.
