Australian Open-air Cinemas You Must Visit

Deckchair Cinema, Darwin

Claiming to be “the oldest outdoor picture garden” still in operation in the world, Sun Pictures in Broome has had its deckchairs set in the sand year-round since 1916.

In Perth, Northbridge Piazza is a community hub where locals gather for free movies on the city’s first permanent LED screen – get in early to nab a beanbag.

Deckchair Cinema, Darwin

And against the backdrop of Darwin Harbour, the indie Deckchair Cinema operates from April to November, only closing for the monsoonal rains of the wet season.
