Venue Hire and Events

Deckchair Cinema is considered one of the most beautiful cinemas in Australia. Located on the edge of Darwin Harbour, it is the perfect location for a relaxing dinner and a movie. A ‘must do’ for locals and visitors alike. 
Deckchair is an ideal location for group bookings, small  functions on our lawn and exclusive use events.
With our fully licensed kiosk (strictly no BYO alcohol) and local caterers, we can coordinate a casual pre-show beverage package, or a full scale event up to our current capacity (Covid depending) . Our venue hire and group booking options include:
• Group Bookings – for school/community groups and groups greater than 50 people
• Lawn Functions – for groups up to 100 (Covid depending) who would like an exclusive function like casual networking, cocktail functions, staff rewards/ incentive events
• Exclusive Use Events – for private events, groups over 200
Being a fully independent cinema we program a diverse range of films including Australian, foreign language, popular, family friendly and the occasional classic. There is something to please everyone. For some venue hire events we may be able to program a film (from the Programming Committee's selections) that is suitable to your audience.
Please note, Exclusive Use Events, Special Screenings/Festival Bookings and Fundraisers are the only nights when the group is able to choose the movie. Please also note that we program well in advance and interested parties are encouraged to indicate their interest 3 months in advance of their preferred date.
