*Tracks Dance Fundraiser - Grey Panthers Cake Stall, Duane Preston 2021


The Fundraising Ballot for 2024 is now closed.


Deckchair Cinema is available to hire for fundraising movie nights by Darwin-based, not-for-profit community organisations.
• Fundraiser Nights are generally held each Sunday throughout our season (mid-April to mid-November). 
• Fundraiser Nights are a great opportunity for organisations to raise much needed funds, raise awareness for your work and are also a great way for you to bring your members and other interested people in the community together for a fun night out. 
• As our Fundraiser Nights are so popular, we operate a random ballot to allocate them. The ballot opens annually in November, and closes at 12pm ACST on 31 January.
• If you held a Fundraiser in the previous year, you are not eligible for a Fundraiser at Deckchair Cinema in the next year.

Some answers to common questions about fundraisers at Deckchair:

• Fundraising organisations get to choose their film for their fundraiser night and we help you with suggestions.

• Fundraising organisations are required to provide dinner food for sale on the night (we can provide a BBQ and/or a Bain Marie). We recommend using a caterer as catering for a large crowd can be a challenge. 
• You cannot sell alcohol, soft drinks, popcorn, ice cream or pre-packaged food as Deckchair Cinema operates a licensed kiosk,  which also sells the above mentioned items. Instead you are welcome to offer home-made cakes along with the hot meals that you sell on the night.
• Applicants are advised whether their applications are successful by the end of February.
