Welcome to the Tors Drive-In, Charters Towers, Queensland. We are one of the oldest drive-in theatres in Queensland, and have been open continuously since 1966! Come along to see the lastest movies and recapture some of the nostalgia of the drive-in era. You'll always get double features at the Tors for less than the price of a single movie at other cinemas and we have the best hot food and candy bar in town at the lowest prices!
Please follow the links on the left of the screen to see which movies are now showing, what's coming soon, other general information and our contact details.

We take movie theft very seriously as it is damaging to our business. Recording of the movie or even the audio of a movie, is a criminal offence. Offenders will be reported to police and will be prosecuted under the copyright act. If you see any person recording a movie in our Drive-In Cinemas, please contact the manager immediately and you'll receive a reward.
