"For an extra $19.90, you can book a Prison Tour prior to the movie screening. Prior to the movie, step inside and join the experienced guides and explore Fremantle Prison from its convict origins in the 1850s until its closure as a maximum-security gaol in 1991. Take a visual journey back in time in the Main Cell Block where you can view life as it was for both convicts and prisoners. Discover how time was passed in the yards, while marvelling at original prisoner works of art. With a whipping post, gallows and solitary cells, Fremantle Prison is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent.
Then get ready for the awesome movie, under the stars in the Main Parade Ground of the Fremantle Prison. Tours will be conducted in small groups and will begin from around 6.00pm. Ticket holders should arrive around 15-20 minutes prior to the start of the tour. Tours start at either 6.00pm or 6.30pm. You can add on a Prison Tour on the Ticketmaster ticketing page when you buy your Prison Cinema ticket."
