A beautiful venue in a wonderful setting. Despite the cushions, I must admit that the chairs were a little uncomfortable, although this was a small compromise to enjoy the ambience of the venue. I would definately recommend this expereince to others.

Did not like the films offers. Was on our list to see but changed our mind. We remember outdoor cinemas in other places many years ago so would have like to attend the one in Darwin but the choice of movies was not good.

I loved this experience of the outdoors and watching a great movie under the stars with my daughter. Good food relaxing atmosphere and great place to reminisce about old times at a drive in movie although this has no cars thankfully. Take a pillow and jumper as it was cool at night in April. :)

This is a nice thing to do on an evening in Darwin. They supply mozzie cream so you won't get eaten alive by the mosquitoes. Great to look at the screen and see the stars above.

Someone suggested the deckchair cinema and as we hadn't seen the film, it seemed a reasonable idea. The evening was warm and dry, so minimal mosquitoes. The ticket queue was inefficient but we got in and had a cheap, Indian meal from a reasonable selection of vegetarian, fish and meat curry, seated at a table- wine, beer etc available. Then... More

Excellent cinema setting, right on the coast below Parliament House. Great inexpensive meals beforehand. We 'lucked' out with the best Indian in town supplied by Hanuman. They cater on a Wednesday.

Sitting back either in a deckchair (or an upright chair) under a clear, night sky with the stars glistening just above you and the sound of little waves gently lapping close by is a perfect way to watch a movie. The Deckchair Cinema is a local, well loved icon, a term that's well deserved. A varied and interesting list of... More
