Not your average movie theatre. This venue was very enjoyable and easily accessible. We enjoyed coming here

Especially loved the atmosphere here and the quaintness of the place. Watching the stars come out and feeling like it was a step back in time. There is local restaurant food served here and the meals were good, it was Indian on the particular night we went. Would advise visitors to Darwin to give it a try.

Enjoyed taking the whole family to cinema under the stars - makes the most of NT climate. Book online to avoid the queues - this is popular with locals too!

An absolute must do in Darwin! Try to arrive a little early to ensure you get a cushion though as the deck chairs become slightly uncomfortable after 2 hours. Absolutely worth it though!

If you decide you would like to include dinner in your plans, you have the option to buy 'concession' which includes a lovely looking Asian meal! Additionally, you... More
