The Open Air Movie Night on Wharf St has been postponed due to heavy wind warnings.

The movie night, which was to show Rio and premiere BOP Film's short film Just Three Girls at 5pm tonight, has been postponed until next Saturday, July 30.

The decision was made by Downtown Tauranga earlier today, due to MetService's weather warning.

Downtown Tauranga hoped to see people next weekend, armed with rugs, cushions and bean bags for a night under stars watching a movie.
