Description

Spend an evening under the stars at Darwin's premier outdoor cinema, the Deckchair Cinema. We're an award winning outdoor cinema on the edge of Darwin’s Harbour open 7 nights a week from mid-April to mid-November. Come down early and enjoy a refreshing beverage from our fully licensed kiosk (no BYO) or feast your taste buds on a hot meal. Gates open nightly at 6.00pm so you can enjoy a tropical sunset before the 7.30pm screening. We are easily accessible via a well-lit, picturesque walkway from the City (via The Esplanade-Damoe Ra Walkway) or the Waterfront Precinct, and there is plenty of parking and bike racks available on site. The Deckchair Cinema is operated by the Darwin Film Society, established in 1954, to give Darwin audiences access to movies that would otherwise go unseen on the big screen. Being Darwin's only independent cinema our program is a diverse range of Australian, popular, family, foreign and classic films. The Darwin Film Society also operate Flix in the Wet (Sunday afternoons, January through March) and the Darwin International Film Festival (annually in September).
