Sunset Drive-In is an Aussie spring/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 light rainy summer nights. We only cancel screenings in extremely bad weather where danger presents itself to our patrons and staff.
We encourage you to check the forecast HERE and check that your windscreen wipers are working!
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.
If you’re still on-site and can’t find something, report it to one of our staff and leave your details.If you have already left the cinema, send us an email at email@example.com and we will have our staff look for you.
