• Phillip Seymour Hoffman Tribute – Good Friday

    Staying in Darwin over Easter and want to beat the crowds at Deckchair Cinema?

    Experience the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman with screenings of Mary & Max (Hoffman voices Max) and Synecdoche, New York, the directorial debut of Charlie Kaufman.

    To keep you fed and watered Hanuman will be serving up their delicious meals and snacks right through until the 9.30pm screening. Yummy!

  • Opening Night & 105.7 ABC Listener Event

    We’re kicking off another spectacular season of film under the stars with exclusive Darwin screenings of Inside Llewyn Davis.

    Inside Llewyn Davis is the latest offering from the Coen Brothers, makers of films like Fargo, The Big Lebowski and No Country for Old Men. This film is inspired by the memory of a Greenwich Village folk singer from the 60s.

Kicking off 2014 with a cracker program!

The countdown until our opening night on!

Fresh from the success of our Flix in the Wet film program we’re gearing up for a cracker 2014 dry season including Oscar® favourites, the Darwin Film Society’s 50th Birthday and our 20th birthday to be celebrated in June, 2013 Fist Full of Films shorts every Sunday, Transitions Film Festival (bit of a teaser for Program 2) and much, much more (others promise, we deliver).

We re-open our gates on Wednesday 16 April, and we’re open every night until Sunday 16 November. Serving dinner and drinks (sorry, no BYO) nightly, come and join us for an evening of film under the stars.
