Your guide to Adelaide’s outdoor cinemas for 2024

Are you ready to finally embrace this warmer weather and catch a summer flick? Here is our guide to Adelaide’s outdoor cinemas for 2024.

Gone are the days where everyone flocked to the drive-in, crammed into a hot car to watch Home Alone with the family.

These days most people just chill at home and catch the latest movies on demand, but there’s something better!

I’m talking about outdoor cinemas—where you grab your mates, a picnic basket of your favourite nibbles, a bottle of SA’s best, and settle in for a great night. Where watching a flick is still a social affair and you get to soak up the best of summer.

With the weather finally on the up, there are still some showings that will be worth your while!


Australia’s favourite open-air cinema showing advance screenings, new releases, and cult films in Botanic Park is back again!
