Back by popular demand! The National Motor Museum is pleased to present another Outdoor Cinema screening of one the best feel good Aussie comedies of recent years, Last Cab to Darwin.

On the scenic grounds of the museum, film-lovers can recline on picnic rugs underneath the stars, listen to an all Aussie playlist prior to the film and enjoy the much love road-movie classic.

The latest in the iconic Australian road-movie genre, this award winning, critically acclaimed film is being shown on an outdoor big-screen at twilight on Australia Day Eve Wednesday 25 January in the grounds of the museum.

Last Cab to Darwin is the true story of Taxi Driver Rex Bell and his epic 3000km solo journey from Broken Hill to Darwin. Featuring exquisite cinematography of the Australian outback, the film features Michael Caton (The Castle) and star of stage and screen Jackie Weaver.

The Museum is encouraging people to bring blankets and rugs, or low lying chairs, and to camp out in the grounds and enjoy the ambience of this unique setting. The museum will be putting on an Aussie BBQ but picnic baskets and BYO alcohol and drinks are most welcome.

“A twilight tour of the museum prior to the film will set the scene for this delightful comedy” said Museum Director Paul Rees. “The Museum really is very special at dusk so we encourage visitors to arrive early and enjoy the surrounds”.

The gates will open at 6pm (film starts at 9pm), go grab your family and friends for a unique outdoor cinema experience!
