Deckchair Cinema, Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia

Pull up a deckchair on the scenic Darwin Waterfront. Watch films under the stars and feel a connection to a long tradition of outdoor movie watching in the Northern Territory.

Open-air cinemas across the ages

Territorians have been going to the movies under the stars for generations, making the most of the climate to screen movies outdoors. During the war years rudimentary outdoor cinemas around Darwin, Katherine and Batchelor entertained the troops. Even The Star, the first purpose-built cinema in Darwin, featured open-air seating.

Deckchair style

Choose a balmy night between April and November and head to the Darwin Waterfront to see a movie under the stars at Deckchair Cinema. Catch a diverse range of films, from Australian to popular, family, foreign and classic, and don't miss the weekend double bills.
