When you arrive, you’ll be asked to park in bay numbers according to the size of your vehicle. This makes sure everyone’s vehicle can see the screen clearly.

  • SMALL vehicles include sedans and hatchbacks.
  • MEDIUM vehicles include wagons and small SUVs.
  • LARGE vehicles include vans and larger SUVs.

Note: Extra-large vehicles such as caravans will not be permitted on site.

Keep in mind that you can sit outside your car, but you must stay in the designated parking bay allocated to you. If it’s a rainy night, the screening will only be cancelled if the weather is a risk to attendees and staff and City of Ryde staff will send you an email/SMS as well as update the City of Ryde website.

You can email [email protected] for any additional information, including if you require wheelchair assistance, or check out their Drive-In Cinema FAQs.
