About Us

Alice Springs Cinema has been a part of our community for nearly 30 years. A magical transformation of what was formerly the site of a supermarket, the Alice Springs Cinema opened in 1989 with two screens. A third screen was added in 1993 and the intimate cinema four added in 2003. The projection equipment was upgraded in 2011 and we are now fully digital.

Alice Springs Cinema has four screens and 551 comfortable, wool covered seats. Our candy bar has a wide range of treats to spoil yourself with when you see a movie, including our famous, hand-made choc tops. We are also now a licensed venue.

Some of the reasons why your cinema is great...

The Best Choctops

In our handmade choctops made on site the icecream goes all the way to the bottom of the cones. We have creamy vanilla, velvety chocolate, fruity boysenberry, irresistible cookies and cream, refreshing choc spearmint and now the new bite-size vanilla for a small snack or say those smaller tummies. Yum!!


Freshly made, warm and lightly salted popcorn you can smell all the way from the carpark! What is a trip to the cinema without it?
Dunk our handmade choctops into it for a sweet/salty combination. Delicious!
