  • SKIP the QUEUE!

    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).


Darwin’s premier outdoor cinema – screening nightly!

We screen films every night of the week from our opening until Sunday 15 November. Check out the Program here, and we’ll see you at the movies!
