  • Fist Full of Films Festival

    Friday 14 and Saturday 15 November, gates open 5pm

    Bring your own blanket / bean bags and grab a front row seat to the action!

    We are celebrating our final 2014 weekend Territory style with the best of the NT’s short filmmakers from the Fist Full of Films Festival!

    Over 2 nights – 14 November and 15 November – we will present the 15th annual short film competition and awards spanning all genres, and music clips. Don’t miss this night of laid back Territory fun. (Tickets to each night sold separately)

  • 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).
