“Outdoor Cinema Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

My Mum and I were in Port Douglas for a long weekend and decided on a whim to head to the Moonlight Cinema on Saturday night. I was pleased to see the film selection was right up our alley (The 100 Foot Journey - great feel good film, perfect for a movie night with Mum!) and the whole booking process was a breeze (online). After reading recommendations from other guests we packed a delicious picnic, took our own wine and arrived a little earlier than the 7.15pm start time. There was no line, we hired Bean Beds (giant bean bags) for $9 each at the door and got a great seat even though the place was already quite busy. The sound quality was good, bean beds were comfortable, crowd was friendly and quiet and the whole experience was relaxing and memorable. I would take some mozzie repellant if you're going on a balmy night, and a warm cover up for later (the temp drops, but not too much - it's tropical North Qld!).
My ONLY complaint is the lack of signage at QT. The cinema set up is not far from the reception are but there is no signage and we had to walk around and find someone to ask before being directed to the right place. Apart from that, nothing to fault. Highly recommended.

“Great night out!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

We were lucky enough to be able to watch Guardians of the Galaxy which is a fun movie in itself. To be able to watch outdoors with small bed size bean bags and our picnic made it even more special. The atmosphere and setup was lovely, with just the right number of people so as not to feel too crowded.
Only downside is that food choices are limited especially for vegetarians. The food and drinks were a bit expensive. Would advise that you being along a picnic and a bottle of wine, and a blanket for winter months.

“Happy kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Always wanted to try this but hard with young kids. Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy, warm weather, and the early dusk of Port Douglas in July made for happy kids and happy family. Super comfy with the bean bags for hire, brought a gourmet picnic along too. Great fun!

“5 stars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Not being big on nightlife, our receptionist recommended this to, both ourselves and friends travelling to Port Douglas with us. We laughed at everyone being so rugged up, for us, it was a balmy summers night. It's great value for money, we all enjoyed it and what a great way to be entertained under the stars.
