Flix in the Wet

Our friends at Deckchair Cinema have packed away the deckchairs, strung up the lights and battened down the hatches in preparation for their closure over the Wet season. But if you can’t live without that incredible Darwin Film Society programming, we have great news for you…

Flix in the Wet returns in January to showcase cinematic gems on the big screen, this time, moving to new digs at Darwin Entertainment Centre (DEC). We can’t wait to spend some rainy Sundays at the DEC-chair Cinema!
