Hair Spray

Event Details

Relax and enjoy a free screening of Hairspray, part of Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau’s outdoor summer cinema line-up in Aotea Square. Come early to secure your spot, bring something comfy to sit on and catch the pre-movie entertainment. The movies starts at 6:30pm.

In 1960s Baltimore, dance-loving teen Tracy Turnblad (Nikki Blonsky) auditions for a spot on ‘The Corny Collins Show’ and wins. She becomes an overnight celebrity, a trendsetter in dance, fun and fashion. Perhaps her new status as a teen sensation is enough to topple Corny’s reigning dance queen and bring racial integration to the show.

Hugely successful on Broadway and in film, this witty show carries a serious message of diversity and acceptance.

Parents, please don’t drop off or leave your children unsupervised at this event. Please note you cannot BYO alcohol to Summer in the Square.

The movie is rated PG –  with sexual references. Parental guidance recommended – some scenes may upset younger or more sensitive tamariki.


Free event.
