The Tivoli Drive In first opened its gates in 1976 and quickly became an iconic Ipswich cinema venue with The Drive In closed in March 2000 and the property was purchased by Rivers of Life Christian Church in 2003 and dedicated as the Tivoli Miracle Centre with a vision of transforming the derelict former cinema into a thriving 7 day per week Church and Community Centre.

In 2008 the church revived Tivoli Drive In as a weekly community Drive In theatre focussed on providing families with low cost family oriented entertainment, and providing employment and work skills training opportunities for unemployed young adults and youth.

Since 2008, the Tivoli Drive In Theatre has screened more than 600 new released movie box office hits; provided employment and skills training opportunities for more than 550 unemployed people or high school students; provided family entertainment for an estimated 480,000 people and raised more than $380,000 for local community groups and charities. 100% of all profits generated by our movie nights and community events go to support the local Ipswich regional community.
