7 Jul 2020

Please note, due to the re-imposed Stage Three restrictions for Melbourne introduced from Midnight Wednesday July 8 by the Victorian State Government, the Lunar Drive-in will be closed from Thursday July 9. We'd like to thank all of you for your wonderful support and we look forward to getting back on screen sometime in August. In line with the relaxation of the Victorian State Government's COVID 19 restrictions, the Lunar Drive-in has reopened. Restrictions will still be in place around the drive-in including social distancing when visiting the toilets and Lunar Cafe. Extra staff will be available to monitor and assist customers in these areas. The Lunar Cafe will operate as takeaway only with a limited number permitted in the building at any one time. After purchase of your food, you must return to your car. Other outdoor areas including playground, grass areas and seating will not be available for use. You must remain inside your vehicle at all times whilst watching the movie. You cannot sit outside of your vehicle. If you have any of the symptoms, however mild like a runny nose, cough, fever, sore throat, chills, you should seek advice and get tested. Please do not come to the drive-in. We reserve the right to refuse entry. Anyone refusing to obey the restrictions outlined above or the direction of staff or management will be asked to leave. Lunar Drive-in encourages frequent handwashing and use of hand sanitizers. The downloading of the Australian Government's COVIDsafe app. is also encouraged. We'd like to thank you all so much for your support during this time. Take care of each other and we look forward to seeing you all back for movies under the stars at Lunar Drive-in.

We take seriously the issue of copyright infringement. Our theatres are patrolled nightly by our security staff and those caught using a camcorder, mobile phone, PDA or ANY recording device whilst films are running will be reported to police and AFACT (the government movie anti-theft organisation), they will also be ejected without refund. You may take still pictures of your family and friends, but only up until the session start time.
