Loved this movie theatre. So glad it has been saved. The set up is excellent, memorabilia there to peruse and loads of room to sit back and enjoy a movie under the stars. Good prices, recent movies and a sky full of stars. What else could you wish for??

Enjoyed a couple of visits while staying in Broome. Particularly enjoy the occasional plane popping in for a visit! The deck chairs are not the most supportive seats - consider taking some cushions

You cannot visit Broome without a trip to sun cinemas. Don't worry what's on, just go and watch it. You won't completely concentrate on the movie anyway, after half an hour you'll be squirming about in the uncomfortable deck chairs or watching interestingly at the geckos crawling around on the big screen. The best bit is the interruption to movie... More

We have been going to Broome for over 30 years and this is the first time we went to Sun Cinema. We sat under the stars and watched the movie in deck chairs and it was the best. Even when the big jet came in to land almost over the top of it just added to the fun. If you... More

Wow, what an experience .so full of history . The film showing was the new Ghostbusters but thehighlight was the Qantas 737 landing just 100 feet above your head and the noise was incredible . Must see number 1 when in Broome

Having never been to this type of cinema before we treated it as fun and it sure was all we expected. Recommend to everyone for the experience and the planes flying overhead add to that.

This is the oldest outdoor cinema still operating anywhere in the world. We visited this iconic attraction a decade ago and recently enjoyed the novel experience again, with three Canadian friends. There are canvas deck chairs and the very front row is (therefore) highly recommended. Come early and bring a pizza to share! There are great discounts for seniors ($5... More

My husband and I went to this cinema at an evening show and it was excellent sitting out with the bright moon above (A good idea is to take a cushion/pillow with you for a bit more comfort)

Went last night with the kids. Awesome atmosphere and surprisingly good sound and picture. Food was cheaper then back east. The history in the building was amazing to think about. Overall a great evening had by all.

This was great fun especially when the planes go overhead had a great time, take a pillow tho, you are a bit slumped in the deck chairs, very relaxing
