Unfortunately when I went to see the first screening 'Last Cab to Darwin' there was a line of people over 100m long. I got there about 15 minutes before it was due to show but I recommend people to get in early, at least 30 minutes before hand to avoid disappointment.

Loved it - a good crowd in. Great facilities and atmosphere under re airport flight path. A plane flew right over just after "plane" was mentioned in the movie "Inside Out" which was great too. Don't miss it!

Walk back in time with canvas chairs and open air movies. The atmosphere is only enhanced by the one or two airplanes flying overhead and landing at the nearby airport. It doesn't matter what is showing, treat yourself to a night of history and cuddle up in the front rows.

It was great fun sitting in deck chairs watching an outdoor movie. Occasional problems with the sound were more than compensated for by the atmosphere. Taking a cushion makes the experience a little more comfortable.

This is a great way to watch a movie, under the stars with added laughs provided by a few adventurous geckos running across the screen. Helen Mirren looked hilarious with a gecko in her nostril. Did miss a bit of dialogue when passenger planes flew over but what the heck, loved it anyway. Take a pillow and a light blanket... More

Sun Cinemas is extremely historic. It is one of the oldest outdoor cinemas in Australia. It can get a bit cold at night in the June-August months so definitely take a blanket or a jumper. It's a lovely experience watching a film under the stars. Although beware windy nights as the screen will blow slightly in the wind!

This is my second trip to Sun Pictures Cinema and once again it was lovely. Half under cover and half under the stars, the low deck chairs are quite comfortable and sound and vision was great. It always gets a bit cool about halfway through so take a light jacket. Planes taking off overhead only add to the experience.

We had a cool balmy evening for our visit to Sun Pictures Cinema. I enjoyed the movie with the added bonus of bats flying across the screen, something different!! I would recommend a visit the next time you are in Broome.

Great experience Old fashioned deck chair seats open air so you can see the stars We watched Jurassic World with the kids and the planes taking off at the local airport just seemed to time it right to add to the sound effects!!

We only found this place whilst doing the heritage trail, once realising this still operates my partner and I thought it was a must visit. Well if they are playing a movie you are interested in, you must check it out! Adorable venue and awesome it still operates nightly. If going, make sure you take a blanket and rug up... More
