Live Cinema Brings Classics to Life in Auckland
Safety Last!

Our annual engagement with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra brings back the most thrill laden classic of silent comedy, Harold Lloyd’s Safety Last! with his rarely seen short film An Eastern Westerner to the Civic Theatre. And a stunning restoration of Variety, a classic tale of backstage passions from Weimar-era Berlin, is accompanied by a new chamber orchestra score composed by Johannes Contag, commissioned by NZIFF and the Goethe-Institut.

Tickets for our one-off screenings of Safety Last! with An Eastern Westerner and Variety are available online (see the film pages for links) and at the Civic Box Office.
