about spiritual cinema

The Waiheke Spiritual Cinema Circle is a group of people who get together every month for an offering of films from all over the world that explore the questions of who we are, why we're here and where we're going with a focus on inspiring, enthusing and entertaining you — and fundraising for Island causes at the same time.


Spiritual Cinema evenings are held on the last Sunday of each month at Waiheke Community Cinemas 'Little Cinema', usually starting at 4:30pm, and is sponsored by Waiheke Wellness and the Cinema. The usual format of the screenings is three short films followed by the feature film.
