WA’s best outdoor movie experiences.

In Western Australia, we’re fortunate to experience long summers that are perfect for outdoor movie cinemas. Here are several of our state’s most loved and iconic movie venues.

Telethon Community Cinemas | Various locations

Enjoying a night at the movies for a good cause is one of our favourite experiences. That’s why we’ve partnered with Telethon Community Cinemas for over ten years!

Telethon Community Cinemas screens from four venues; Bassendean, Burswood, Murdoch University and ECU Joondalup Pines. Check out the schedule and grab your tickets online or at the box office.
