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.

The atmosphere is great. Watching a movie under the stars, on a pleasant Darwin august evening down by the harbour. Add to that a delicious curry, a glass of wine and an ice cream. What more can you ask for.

Fantastic experience! If I am ever in Darwin again I will for sure see another movie here.

TIP: Purchasing tickets online allows you to go to the front of the line, ahead of those purchasing at the box office.

Liked being able to eat a tasty informal valueformoney meal with a glass ( well plastic cup) of wine whilst looking out over Darwin Bay - and then just laying back in a deckchair and being entertained with a movie - another glass of wine and an ice cream! Heaven.

This outdoor cinema feels like you're in an arty part of Melbourne. It's funky, cool and shows great movies. You can buy drinks at pair prices, delicious curries and they supply cushions for the deck chairs and insect repellent for your legs.
