Movie Cruise Taupo: Floating Cinema

Watch a blockbuster movie while sailing Taupo with Barbary, NZ’s only boat cinema!

Lights, camera, action! What’s better than an open-air cinema? NZ’s only floating cinema! Barbary’s Movie Cruise makes for a fantastic and unique night out. Whether it’s your anniversary, a fun evening with your mates, or you’re simply looking for cool things to do in Taupo this summer, this sail cruise is like no other.

Charter Barbary for yourselves during the summer months and watch a blockbuster movie on a 3-metre outdoor screen. Enjoy the sunset, then sit back and enjoy your movie cruise experience on a comfy bean bag under the summer’s starry night sky. Warm ponchos are supplied (or simply cuddle up to someone special!)

You are welcome to bring nibbles, a takeaway meal and beverages to enjoy – sailing Taupo has never been more fun. Group bookings are essential (limit: 8 people), so contact us now to secure your spot!
