  • SKIP the QUEUE!

    Buy your ticket online to skip any waiting queue on the right aisle.

    You’ll saunter down to the Box Office on the left aisle where our staff will scan your bar/QRcode, or enter your booking number, and you go straight in!

    No waiting around. So you can enjoy the  sunset sooner, a drink or some food, and of course reserve your seat for the movie.

    Don’t wait, book online now (same price as Box Office ticket).

  • Dinner tonight…

    A picture says a 1,000 words right? Or in this case it says 20 words and 1 number. So we’ll say it again:

    Saturday- Incredible India
    Sunday-Trina’s Catering
    Monday-Incredible India
    Tuesday-Trina’s Catering
    Thursday-Fundraiser catering
    Dinner available nightly from 6.30pm until 7.30pm.


Deckchair Cinema is Darwin’s first and premier outdoor cinema

We’re open from 6.30pm nightly from now until Sunday 16 November

Food and drinks are available every night before the movies (we are a fully licensed venue so you cannot bring your own alcohol), so you can enjoy an evening of food and film in our open air cinema under the stars.
