The Backlot Rooftop Drive-in

A sparkling twist on a much-loved classic is Melbourne’s latest entertainment attraction, with The Backlot Rooftop Drive-in showcasing blockbuster films nightly, set against a dazzling, 360-degree view of Melbourne’s stunning nightscape.

The only drive-in of it’s kind in Australia, The Backlot Rooftop Drive-in is located within Dockland’s Harbour Town precinct and is open every night from 8pm.

This twin drive-in cinema embodies all the excitement, romance and nostalgia of a traditional drive-in screening blockbuster titles nightly broadcasted to vehicles via restricted FM transmitters. Each field accommodates 60 vehicles designed for optimum viewing with consideration for height variances. For those who prefer to experience the drive-in alfresco without a car, there is an intimate ‘blue-deck’ seated area for walk-up patrons with sound received through headphones.

It’s not only cinematic appetites that will be indulged, a candy bar offering favourite movie-treats such as choc-tops and popcorn is also available.

With a new generation set to experience this enduring concept, reimagined for the 21st century, The Backlot Rooftop Drive-in is an entertainment destination that Melbournians have been waiting for.
