• Charlie’s Country Q&A

    No waiting around. So you can enjoy the  sunset sooner, a drink or some food, and of course reserve your seat for the movie.

    Don’t wait, book online now (same price as Box Office ticket).

Deckchair Cinema is Darwin’s first and premier outdoor cinema

We’re open from 6.30pm nightly from now until Sunday 16 November
