Auckland On Screen Abigail from Newmarket Primary School gets behind the camera.EXIT Films. Cinema has a rich history in Auckland. The first kiriata (film) ever shot in Auckland was made by WH Bartlett in 1898. He captured a band playing at the opening of the Auckland Industrial and Mining Exhibition. Auckland has been on screen ever since. The theatre space in Taku Tāmaki – Auckland Stories features a series of tales as told by some very imaginative Auckland school children. Kids from all over Auckland were asked: “If you could make a film set in Auckland what would it be about?” Four of their stories were turned into films thanks to EXIT Films.
