Outdoor Cinema Hire Sunshine Coast

Grab your blankets, lollies and popcorn and come experience our state-of-the-art open air cinemas for an evening to remember.

A beautiful, breezy evening on the Sunshine Coast offers the perfect setting for an outdoor cinema experience. Servicing medium to large events between the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, our team delivers fantastic, professional events for the whole family.

Outdoor movies provide the perfect pastime for the whole community.  We create special, memorable screenings of the latest releases, movie classics and cartoons for good old fashioned fun at beautiful locations on the Sunny Coast. Right before sundown, families and people of all ages arrive with blankets, lawn chairs, inflatable beds and bean bag chairs to find the perfect spot to lounge on the grass while watching their favourite films. If the movies are themed, you’ll often find audience members in costumes of all sorts!

Our gigantic Spectrum cinema SuperScreen (8m wide x 4.5m high) is combined with a state-of-the-art sound system that rivals any indoor cinema movie experience. There’s nothing quite like watching a film outdoors on the beautiful Sunshine Coast with all the popcorn and treats you like.

We’re perfect for medium to large size events, parties, or the big game.  We hope to see you and your loved ones for your favourite films soon. 

Sunshine Coast Outdoor Cinema Hire Services

Spectrum provides a number of regular open air cinema events for government and corporate clients, including a seven-year partnership with City of Gold Coast. We’ve delivered 300+ events to date, each with a focus on unrivalled client and guest service.

Create your ideal event with our trailer-mounted SuperScreen:

  • Our setup is strong and versatile, enabling us create events at unique 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.

Have a chat to us about your event and we can put together the infrastructure that will make your event truly memorable!

  • Food trucks
  • Popcorn

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.
