Gold Coast Outdoor Cinema Hire

Enjoy a fantastic evening on the coast and experience the best in outdoor cinema with Spectrum.

Imagine watching a movie under the stars with a beautiful breeze, salty air and gentle waves in the distance.  That’s what awaits you at a Spectrum event on the Gold Coast.  We specialise in outdoor cinemas rentals for medium to large events where presentation, quality and professionalism are front and centre.

Outdoor movies are a blast for the whole family, especially on the gorgeous Gold Coast. We like to think of our events as a community-spirited, big-screen celebrations of the latest movie releases, classics, cartoons, and just good old-fashioned fun.  Right before sunset, families, couples and friends of all ages arrive with their blankets, lawn chairs, inflatables and bean bag chairs to find a spot on the soft grass and watch their favourite films in the fresh evening breeze. If our movies are themed, we absolutely encourage facepaint, costumes – the whole works!

With Spectrum, you’ll experience a massive, high-definition outdoor cinema screen combined with a state-of-the-art sound system that rivals any indoor cinema movie experience. There’s nothing quite like watching films under the stars – it’s an atmosphere made for creating wonderful memories. 

We hope you get to enjoy one of our events soon. This is the way nights on the Gold Coast were meant to be enjoyed!

Outdoor Cinema Hire Services

We’re proud to be the current provider for the City of Gold Coast “Movies Under the Stars.” During the past seven years in partnership with City of Gold Coast, we have successfully delivered over 300 high quality and professional events with a focus on customer service to ensure both organisers and attendees have an incredible experience.

Create the ultimate event with our trailer-mounted SuperScreen:

  • Our setup is strong and versatile, enabling us create events at unique open-air locations
  • We can work on uneven sites with our exclusive “Level-True” levelling system
  • The screen can endure up to 25 knot winds which inflatable screens can’t handle. This means that in the event of inclement weather your event is more likely to proceed.

We also have an absolutely huge inflatable screen for those locations that are more protected. See below for more details on each setup.

Chat to our team about your event and together, we’ll create an evening to remember!

FAQs

What size is the outdoor movie screen?

We have 2 large outdoor movie screens, measuring 8m high x 4.5m wide.  See the Outdoor Cinema page for full details on both systems.

Our newest addition is a long-term semi-permanent screen. See the Convertible Screen page for details.

Can it be used in the daytime?

Just like a drive-in, it can't be used during the day as there is too much ambient light for the projection to show.

If you need a daylight screen, have a look at large LCD/LED screens.

What is the "seating" capacity?

Our outdoor movie setup can accommodate around 1,500 people comfortably.

What sort of things can I show on the screen?

Anything!!

For example:

  • Movies (licensing required)
  • Advertising slideshow
  • Home movies
  • Student productions
  • Short film festivals
  • Live action (eg: from a stage)
  • Games Console (eg: PlayStation, Wii)
  • Television broadcasts (eg: State of Origin)
How much does it cost to licence a movie?

Movie licensing fees vary according to location, estimated crowd numbers, etc. Fees are usually in the ballpark of $600-$800, however school groups generally have a lower price.

Who do you recommend for our movie choices and licensing needs?

We use Roadshow Public Performance Licensing for our licensing requirements.

What would I use it for?

Some of the great events we use our big-screen outdoor cinema setup for are:

  • Movies in the Park
  • Movies Under the Stars
  • Movies by the Lake
  • Movies on the Beach
  • Outdoor Cinema by the Sea
  • Cinema under the Stars

Alternatively, if you’re having a corporate event or conference you could help your guests to defrag, relax and rejuvenate by giving them a relaxing night under the stars.   In your private viewing you can include food trucks, drinks, bean bags… you could even screen a montage of the days’ events.  What a great way to add value to your attendees.

What about my location / the weather?

Commencing the provision of outdoor cinema in 2003 means we now have nearly 20 years’ experience in this arena and have endured all manner of locations - from beaches to rooftops - plus years of the unpredictable Queensland weather.
