You must spend a night at the cinema - such a lovely evening on a warm Broome night. The atmosphere is fantastic including the low flying planes and lizards! Good quality film equipment and all the classic cinema options - popcorn and choc tops!

What a great atmosphere sitting under the stars enjoying a film with planes flying low over head. There is old history of how blacks and whites could not mix sociably. There is a kiosk with drinks and nibbles available.
