Time Out says
Melbourne's largest arthouse movie complex, Cinema Nova boasts a whopping 16 screens devoted to new release arthouse and upmarket commercial films, plus regular films events, special screenings and festivals.
Monday is their famed discount day – regular tickets are $7 for sessions before 4pm and $9 for sessions after 4pm (3D movies $13 all day). Note: discounts do not apply on public holidays, actual or observed.
If you arrive early, take in the view over Lygon Street with a coffee or cocktail in hand at the Cinema Nova bar, or make a whole night of it with dinner, drinks and a flick.
