  • Fundraiser Ballot 2015


    Each Thursday night during our operating season (April-November) we offer the Deckchair Cinema for hire by not-for-profit, community, sporting and school groups for fundraising movie screenings.

    These are a great way to socialise with your members, as well as raise awareness and funds for your organisation.

    Applications are purely by the online ballot this year, and close on Saturday 31 January 2015. 

  • Christmas present ideas

    Check out Christmas gifts online or come straight to us (for those items not available for sale online). We have:

    • Shatter proof wine glasses – great for round the pool
    • Flix in the Tropix – a book about the history Deckchair Cinema and the Darwin Film Society
    • Memberships
    • Gift vouchers – to whatever value you like. Redeemable for tickets, merchandise and/ or items from our kiosk
    • T-shirts – in limited sizes, and much more…

    (No possums were harmed in the making of this promotion.)

  • SKIP the QUEUE!

    Buy your ticket online to skip any waiting queue on the right aisle.

    You’ll saunter down to the Box Office on the left aisle where our staff will scan your bar/QRcode, or enter your booking number, and you go straight in!

    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).
