DVD Plaza is an outdoor viewing party like no other. We celebrate the phenomenon of straight-to-DVD movies, presenting these works for the first time on the big screen with epic sound. Our pop-up cinema takes over parks, squares, town hall forecourts and more, activating underused public spaces while shedding light on underrated masterworks (plus a few so-bad-they’re-good shockers – naturally).
We aim to get families off the living room couch, bring communities together and create talking points in urban spaces, all through the magical medium of the DVD. Our events are available to councils and community groups at a relatively low cost, and have been incorporated in to film festivals, fundraisers, alternative arts festivals and more.
Our passionate programmers love devising double and even triple feature events that are fun, unexpected and one-of-a-kind. Past themes have included the likes of:
- One For Me, One For You: Action-Adventure/Romantic Comedy (Double Feature)
- Good, Bad & Ugly: Three Degrees of Quality (Triple Feature)
- Freakout Sleepout: Cult Horror Overnighter
- Schoolies: Bad High School Flicks for New Year 12 Grads
- Parental Guidance: Kids Movies For Grown-Ups (BYO wine and cheese)
Here’s what people are saying about our events:
The outdoor DVD screening was a huge success. The Plaza team showed professionalism and a collaborative attitude, which was reflected in a smoothly delivered event that integrated seamlessly with the Jilkin Film Festival.

Thanks to DVD Plaza, we raised enough money to fund our junior troupe’s trip to Croatia for the World Handbalancing Championships. Who knew there were so many straight-to-DVD movies with acrobatic scenes?!

Entertaining and inclusive. Looking forward to next semester’s event!
