Yatala Drive-In

Experience Disney’s animated classic The Little Mermaid under the stars at Yatala Drive-In

Would you love to take the kids to a movie but worried about social distancing? Yatala Drive-In could be just what you’re looking for. Appealing to young and old alike – the Yatala Drive-In is South East Queensland’s last open-air Drive-In motion picture theatre. It first opened in 1974, with only one screen and is now Australia’s most modern Drive-In Theatre, boasting 3 massive screens – the biggest of which is 33.5 metres wide! The Yatala Drive-in is more than just movies; it’s about starry nights, cruisin’ in and eatin’ out!

Family-friendly movies showing this Saturday & Sunday include:

  • The Little Mermaid – 6.00pm
  • Aladdin (2019 live-action adaptation) – 6.30pm
  • The Sound of Music – 6.15pm

Never been to the Drive-In before? Here’s what to expect:

  • You control the movie sound level through your car FM radio
  • We suggest bringing blankets, pillows and sleeping bags, mattresses to make it super cosy in the back of your van, ute or car
  • The other option is to sit on outdoor chairs next to your car or on the grass in front of the huge screen
  • Arrive early to find a good parking space
  • Eat, drink and relax in your own car! You can bring your own food or enjoy hot food and movie munchies from the 50’s diner
  • With no dress code rules, attire varies from shorts and thongs to cocktail wear. And some have been known to arrive resplendent in one-piece pyjamas, finished off with fluffy dog-eared slippers 
  • Purchase your tickets in advance online and present the barcode at the ticket office in order to have a contactless entrance procedure
  • Gates open approx 5.30pm
