Attraction details
Owner description: The Deckchair Cinema is THE outdoor cinema on Darwin's Waterfront. We are a fully indepedent movie theatre operated by the Darwin Film Society, established in 1954, to give Darwin audiences unseen movies on the big screen. The Deckchair Cinema is located on Darwin's Waterfront (Jervois Road), and is open 7 nights a week from mid April to mid November. Gates open nightly at 6.30pm so you can enjoy a tropical sunset over Darwin Harbour before the 7.30pm screening. Our program is a diverse range of Australian, popular, family, foreign and classic films. Come down early, enjoy a refreshing beverage from our fully licensed kiosk or feast your taste buds on a hot meal from one of our food vendors. No BYO alcohol. We are easily accessible via a well-lit picturesque walkway from the City Esplanade and there is plenty of parking and bike racks available on site.

Loved it, sat there under a beautiful sky in a deckchair having a wine and watching the Sapphires. It was different, fun and a first.

Not many places left n this world where you can experience cinema the way it is done in the Top End.
Great atmosphere, food and good priced drinks.
Awesome seating and comfort available for the early birds.
Remember you can take your own food and I strongly suggest bring your own pillow.
Oh and the bug spray as them mozzies like cinema too.

This is a great, fun night. We got in on opening as it was busy, grabbed our cushions and found a seat. The food was Haunamans and was great, line up early though as it goes fast. Bar is well stocked with beer, wine, softies, icecream, lollies and souveniers. We all really enjoyed this outing.

Beautiful atmosphere! We found the friendly service made the visit a pleasure. The movie we saw was "quirky". The entire experience was lots of fun.
