Time Out says

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.

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.

Europa! Europa Film Festival

  • Film festivals

Europa! Europa Film Festival returns for its Australian encore, and this year you can expect a riveting line-up of 29 films from 24 countries that will transport you from the edge of your seat and across the European continent.  The festival will take place across Sydney and Melbourne, and audiences can expect a smorgasbord of European films showing from February 16 to March 7, 2023. Melbourne screenings will be held at Classic Cinemas in Elsternwick and Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn. While many Aussies will be forking out the cash to splash on a summer vacay overseas, why not save the money and be whisked on a visual journey of Europe through the diversity of the festival's film program. The selection caters to a circus of different genres and styles, including feel-good sports films, period biopics, disaster films, relationship dramas and comedies.  One of the highlights of the 2023 festival will be the Australian premiere of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s masterful Three Colours Trilogy – a triptych of psychological drama films that embody the bold spirit of European cinema’s arthouse boom of the 1990s.  French eco-thriller The Blaze will launch the festival’s program. Directed by Quentin Reynaud and featuring standout performances by André Dussollier and Alex Lutz, The Blaze follows Simon and his ageing father Joseph as they try and escape a devastating wildfire in the south of France. The grand finale of the festival will be a special screening of Allelujah, a British film which feat
