An exciting Australian-first event

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), in partnership with Village Cinemas, is proud to present Drive In(Door) Cinema; the first drive-in cinema in Australia that is weatherproof and daytime-friendly!

MCEC's Drive In(Door) Cinema will be held inside the venue's enormous exhibition bays, normally known for housing global business events and pop-culture exhibitions. This is an opportunity to enjoy a trip to the cinema both day and night, without fear of bad weather.

The timings of each screening will afford audiences more opportunities to enjoy child-friendly matinee sessions over the Summer school holidays, or later sessions for big kids and adults, wanting to enjoy some classic films in a new way.

The family program includes timeless kids' favourites such as Frozen and Shrek, as well as newly-released Trolls: World Tour. The diverse evening program includes cinematic classics: The Breakfast Club, Clueless, Top Gun and Dirty Dancing.

With space for 174 cars, the cinema will operate under MCEC's VenueSafe plan, to maintain physical distancing and ensure audience safety, including in-car food and beverage service via the Skip app.

There will also be a classic Australian cinema candy bar menu - including movie-going favourites such as popcorn and choc tops - as well as ice cream and doughnuts courtesy of food trucks Nitro 196 Below and The Dough Truck.

The cost is $49 per car with tickets on sale now through
