Perth Festival of the Arts Visitor Information

Drive-in Cinema Information

The Drive-in Cinema has been designed so that households can enjoy a live event together in their own vehicle. Access to the event is by vehicle only.

You must only attend with members of your extended household. Audiences should stay in their cars for the duration of the film unless you need to access refreshments or toilets.

If you need to leave your vehicle, please flash your lights and a steward will direct you to the facilities. Please wear a face covering when buying refreshments or accessing the toilets; this helps to keep you and others around you in queues safe. If you need assistance, our Festival Stewards will be on hand to help.


There will be take-away refreshments on sale through Scone Palace or you can bring your own picnic for eating in your vehicle. Please note that no alcohol is permitted on site.
