Auckland, We’re Coming For Ya!

For the second consecutive year, Menulog is teaming up with Auckland Council to bring you ‘Music and Movies in Parks 2019’. The annual event, spanning from January through April, will bring free music and outdoor movies to a park near you. And boy, is this year’s program jam-packed with all the festive summer treats you could ask for!

Is there a better way to enjoy your favourite film than in the open air, under the stars? The correct answer is obviously ‘no’. Whether you need to get the kids out of the house for fun family adventures, or you’re down for date night, Menulog’s bringing you a packed schedule of sweet summertime options. From Oscar-winning flicks like La La Land, to cult classics like Grease and Back to the Future 2, we’ve got all you movie-lovers covered.

At each of our 13 events, the Menulog Voucher Blower will be giving away hundreds of vouchers to anyone who’s up for chasing some awesome discount offers. We’ll also be dishing out plenty of excellent swag and fantastic freebies, including air loungers, umbrellas and blankets, for those who download the Menulog app (like you needed any extra incentive).

And what would ‘Movies and Music in Parks’ be without our very own larger than life delivery robot? That’s right, the popular Menubot will be returning again this year to deliver Menulog orders and add a little fun to your movie-going experience!
