Filming A Wrinkle in Time

Hosting Storm Reid, Oprah and Director Ava DuVernay at The Retreat

Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat was privileged to host actor Storm Reid during the filming of A Wrinkle in Time.

We welcomed Storm and her mother, Robyn, during filming here at Lake Pukaki. Storm is an inspiring young woman and the trailer demonstrates her incredible talents.

“Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home! I had an awesome time! You are so sweet! Thank you again. You made shooting A Wrinkle in Time easy.” – Storm Reid

During filming, Oprah and Director Ava DuVernay also joined us for dinner and a stargazing experience in the Pukaki Wine Cellar Observatory. What wise women! With their leadership and talent, this movie will be a must-see and we can’t wait to see A Wrinkle in Time when it comes to New Zealand screens.

There are not enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe this experience….This gem is tucked away off the beaten track, but within close proximity to all of the highlights of the region. Sunsets and sunrise on the patio or from your room are stunning. Pair this magnificent location with the most beautiful of accommodation….The Retreat is impeccably decorated yet is inviting and comfortable. Third, add a dash of the most amazing hosts you could imagine. Such kind and lovely people. You are welcomed as an old friend would be. Fourth, in the evening take a look up to the sky and just try to turn away. Highly likely you have never seen a night sky like this before. The constellations and enormity of the cosmos are on full display at this dark sky sanctuary. Make sure to book the observatory viewing…beyond spectacular.
