New Year’s Eve at Wallis Cinema’s Mainline Drive-In | 31 Dec 2021

New Year’s Eve at Wallis Cinema’s Mainline Drive-In

Be the first to see Ghostbusters Afterlife (PG) and the last to see in the New Year at Adelaide’s only remaining outdoor drive-in cinema.

The Wallis family, after 65 years of operating, has made the difficult decision to close the Gepps Cross Mainline Drive-In after the upcoming Summer season. The New Year’s Eve screening of Ghostbusters Afterlife will be followed by the Sydney fireworks shown on the big screen.

The cost for one movie is $25 PER CAR PER FILM (maximum of 5 people per car – extra persons $10 each).


Play & Go Tips on What to Bring to the Drive-In Movies:

Pack the car with pillows, blankets and movie snacks to make yourself as comfortable as possible. 

Bring a picnic basket from home with an easy dinner or pick up something such as a roast chicken, fish & chips or your favourite take-away on the way there. There is also a cafe located inside the drive-in that sells snacks, popcorn, ice-creams, drinks and hot food. 

Be sure to rug up on chilly nights as your car engine will be turned off. The movie is broadcast over a local radio channel (our car kept turning itself off during the film!) so we recommend bringing a portable radio. The kids can even go dressed in their pyjamas so they’re ready for bed when you get home!

Cars with rear hatches that open right up such as SUV’s and station wagons are ideal – kids love piling into the back with sleeping bags, pillows and bean bags. 

Remember you are allowed to take the family dog too!
