Hi Fane T, Glad that you liked Deckchair Cinema, and thanks for coming! I know that there is some confusion about our food and drinks so I just wanted to clarify... As we are a fully licensed venue, people are not able to bring their own alcohol into Deckchair. However, you are welcome to bring your own dinner down, or... More

One of the best things to do in Darwin. Food & drinks available, different caterers each night, usually really good food. Possums in the trees get a lot of interest, sometimes hear them growling during the movie! Get there early for the food & to get a cushion (provided free).

We were excited to come across this little gem in Darwin. The deckchair cinema has lots of cozy deck chairs to relax in outside while you watch the film. It also has a variety of beer, cider, wine, snacks and food (we didn't try the food but it looked decent). The cinema is right by the water so you can... More

LOVED!!! We were there on school holidays and I expect many people missed out the night we were there! Hard to find. Ask locals where it is. Off the edge of a carpark!

Our second outdoor cinema in Australia. This time they were selling food and drink, which would have been good to know in advance as the food looked great (good for veggies). You can get a cushion for free, but get there early to grab one. Nice touch providing free insect repellent, although it is oil based so watch your clothes!... More

It was OK. The movie was great, on a little late obviously to avoid temperature. i just found it quiet hot and couldn't handle the heat.

Hi Matthew1123, April can definitely be a hot time so thanks for making the effort to come down to enjoy a movie with us! Do come back again in June/July/August if you are coming back to Darwin. It can even get a little chilly here at that time of year and some people are asking for blankets!! Hope you had... More

We walked to the theatre from our hotel downtown via the park along the waters edge overlooking the Darwin Harbour and then down the stairs. The theatre is about to turn 50 and is a great experience. There is always food available and on Thursdays it is always provided by a local charity. There is a licensed bar and they... More

Sometimes food sold as fundraising. Good to sit at the front. Choose fine weather for this outdoor venue .. Almost all of May - October is Dry. Take a pillow for your neck as seats are canvas, laid back style, and can be uncomfortable. It is great to look out at the bush and stars and watch a movie on... More
