Gates open at 5PM. The film starts from 6:30PM at sunset, you can check out when the sun sets HERE. As we are an outdoor cinema we need it to be dark for the film to be visible on the screen. We recommend arriving early to get the best spot possible as we often fill up. It also gives you time grab your food & drinks and settle in for the film.
Absolutely, Sunset Cinema is the perfect place to enjoy a family night out or entertainment the kids for a few hours. Also, be aware that we sometimes show films classified MA15+ (for the adults) which require children under 15 to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
To fully enjoy your Sunset Cinema experience, we suggest the following things:- Layering up or bringing a blanket for those chillier summer nights.
– Insect repellent to keep those mozzies away!
– If you haven’t hired any seating then you are more than welcome to bring you own rugs, pillows, lawn chairs ect. Just be aware that taller chairs will be restricted to the back of the grounds so that everyone can see the screen.
– If it looks like it’s going to rain then a poncho is recommended as we will only cancel the session if the weather becomes heavy and dangerous. We will also have a limited amount of Ponchos and blankets available on-site. No open umbrellas are allowed during the screening.
– Friends, Family or Dates; Sunset Cinema is best enjoyed with others!

Sunset Cinema is an Aussie summer outdoor event. Part and parcel of that is being open to all the elements mother nature may throw at us; including unpredictable weather changes at any moment. We screen in most weather conditions, including those rainy summer nights. We only cancel screenings in seriously foul weather where danger presents itself to our patrons and staff.
We encourage you to check the forecast HERE and like all good adventurers, pack accordingly (and remember forecasts can change). If it looks like rain, then wear something waterproof and if it looks a little chilly, then bring something to snuggle under.
If packing and prepping isn’t your thing, we’ve got limited rain ponchos available on site if it begins to rain and blankets in case it gets cool.
Coming to an outdoor event always has its weather risks. You accept, by purchasing tickets, that you acknowledge the unpredictability of the weather and no refunds will be given if you do not find the weather satisfactory.
In the unlikely event of a cancellation, the notification will come via SMS & Email. You will be entitled to exchange your tickets to another screening night during the current season. Refunds will not be given for weather cancellations, unless it is the final week of the season.
In the event of a total fire ban, no smoking will be permitted.
Unfortunately due to the technical requirements of outdoor cinema we are unable to offer any closed caption or audio descriptive screenings.
If you have already left the cinema, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have our staff look for you.
