UPDATE 24 Jan 2022: Auckland Live, our partners and artists involved in Auckland Live Summer in the Square regret to announce that due to New Zealand being in Covid-19 Red Traffic Light setting indefinitely, all events scheduled from Friday 28 January - 26 February will not be going ahead. Due to the nature of the events planned and difficulty safely distancing or capping audience numbers in Aotea Square, the events are now postponed until further notice.  The welfare and safety of our artists, staff and audiences will remain our first priority.  


Animation Gets Groovy is a collection of short, creative films that are sure to delight anyone young, old or in-between! Each playful film is unique in its own special way - from rhythmic cartoon characters and cheeky mice to forest orchestras and giant giraffes.

This fun event for the whole whānau is a chance to open up your imagination and celebrate dance and movement in ways that only animation can bring to life.

Please note: All visitors must show a valid My Vaccine Pass, sign in and wear a face covering when required

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
