Drive in to Mount Panorama and enjoy a range of movie classics on the big screen from your car! This in-car, socially distanced experience will have you reliving the old days and making new memories. Round up your mates, rug up the kids, pick up dinner from a great Bathurst eatery on the way and enjoy a special night out.

Movies feature every night of the festival. Check the session times below for screening times and movies.

Buy one ticket and stay for two movies every Saturday! Experience a mini movie marathon when two classic films team up for a great night out at Mount Panorama. This special event features the first movie at 6pm, a short intermission followed by the second and final movie of the night.

*Please note you cannot buy single sessions on Saturday nights. If you only want to stay for one movie, check out all the single sessions available on other nights.



1 ticket = one car for entry

You can have as many people in your car as legally allowed (one seat per person - NO squeezing in extra people!).

$45 per ticket – single session

$80 per ticket – Saturday night’s double feature


Tickets must be pre-purchased. Tickets will not be sold at the gate.
