Previously a dead building in middle of the busy Glenferrie Road strip in Hawthorn, Lido Cinemas has been revived into a vibrant, eight-screen cineplex that is now showing a mix of commercial and arthouse releases from all over the world.

Much of the historic interior has been left intact, but the interior has been given a modern touch with swathes of bold colours. Deep red walls, purple carpeting and block coloured decor interplay with the cinema's original fixtures.

Downstairs you'll find a Huxtaburger diner for a pre-movie bite and well-stocked candy store to get you prepared for your movie. Make date night complete with a visit to the Lido Jazz Room, a bar which pays homage to Manhattan jazz bars of the 80s and which hosts weekly live jazz performances. In the summer months, Lido also plays host to a rooftop cinema with a separate bar.

    In Late Night, screenwriter and costar Mindy Kaling dares to imagine a world where a top female comedian has been hosting a popular late-night talk show for nearly three decades. It’s a gutsy premise that runs counter to the sad longstanding rea...

    There’s a lot that’s mind-bendingly corny about director Danny Boyle and writer Richard Curtis’s Yesterday, a peppy ‘what-if?’ musical comedy that imagines a world in which the Beatles never existed. Your ability to spend time in its big-hearted...

    Review by Joshua Rothkopf Unusually for a horror director, Ari Aster knows the real world is awful enough. Life doles out plenty of pain. Hereditary, his 2018 feature debut and probably the scariest movie in a decade, basically went: My grief o...
