Escape To Hopetoun This Summer With The Mallee’s Coolest Open-Air Cinema!

The aim of Mallee Sunset Cinema is to bring an exciting and accessible source of entertainment that is unique to Hopetoun and the surrounding towns. Being only a short walk from Lake Lascelles, Mallee Bush Retreat and the caravan park, as well as the Hopetoun Community hotel motel, it makes for an easy and fun activity for both travellers and locals alike. We hope that our cinema will bring many smiles and much laughter, and become something that our whole community can enjoy.
