ECU Joondalup Pines

The ECU Joondalup Pines outdoor cinema, located on our Joondalup Campus, is home to the Telethon Community Cinemas film program. Run by over 700 volunteers, Telethon Community Cinemas proudly donate all profits to kids’ charities through Telethon. That means when you watch a movie at ECU’s outdoor cinema, you’ll be helping hundreds of WA kids in need.

Situated amongst the pine trees, with festoon lights above and a lake and landscaped surrounds, the venue offers the opportunity to view blockbuster and family friendly films in a unique setting. Hire a bean bag, bring your own picnic rug and chairs, or relax in our deckchair-style seating. You can also purchase food and drinks (including alcohol) from our candy bar.


The 2020/21 film season runs during the summer months, from 26 November 2020 to 17 April 2021, with nightly screenings. Gates open at 6.30pm and screenings commence at 7.45pm.


Tickets can be purchased online until 5.45pm each evening from Telethon Community Cinemas then at the gate from 6.30pm. Ticket prices are $14 adults, $7 children and $10 concession. ECU staff can purchase discounted $10 adult tickets at the door (by showing your staff card) and ECU students can purchase $7 tickets at the door (by showing your student card).


The film program is available at Telethon Community Cinemas.
