Joondalup Pines

The Joondalup Pines outdoor cinema, located on our Joondalup Campus, is home to the Perth Festival’s annual Lotterywest Film program, held during the warmer months of December-April.

Situated amongst pine trees and adjacent to a lake and landscaped surrounds, the venue offers staff, students and the general public an opportunity to view acclaimed international films in a unique setting.

Opened in 1999, the venue can accommodate up to 400 patrons on a mix of deckchair-style seats, bean bags or on their picnic rugs on grassed areas.
