The Dolphin Court is situated right next to the Bondi Pavilion. It is a grassed and concreted amphitheatre venue.
There is metered parking on the beach via Campbell Parade as well as at the main entrance to the Pavilion. Parking can be very limited at peak summer times. If you drive we encourage you to allow for extra time to find a park.
Gates open at 6:00PM. The film starts at last light, you can check out when the sun sets HERE. As we are an outdoor cinema we need it to be dark for the film to be visible on the screen.

Absolutely, Sunset Cinema is the perfect place to enjoy a family night out or entertain the kids for a few hours. Also, be aware that we sometimes show films classified MA15+ (for the adults), which require children under 15 to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
To fully enjoy your Sunset Cinema experience, we suggest the following things: Layering up or bringing a blanket for those chillier summer nights.
– Insect repellent to keep those mozzies away!
– If you haven’t hired any seating then you are more than welcome to bring your own rugs, pillows, lawn chairs ect. Just be aware that taller chairs will be restricted to the back of the grounds so that everyone can see the screen.
– If it looks like it’s going to rain then a poncho is recommended as we will only cancel the session if the weather becomes heavy and dangerous. We will also have a limited amount of Ponchos and blankets available on-site. No open umbrellas are allowed during the screening.
– Friends, Family or Dates; Sunset Cinema is best enjoyed with others!
