Was a lovely night with great friends - something that I will treasure. Get in early to obtain a chair and food and drink. A little prizy, but thats Port Douglas.

I really enjoy the Moonlight Cinema in Port Douglas and find every time I visit it's on the top of my families list of things to do. There are options to rent beanbag lounges but we always take our own small camp chairs and blankets....More
