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.

    If Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr Fox was a joyful slice of whimsy, his latest foray into stop-motion creature features is a more complex beast. Set in a near-future Japan, it’s a dystopian, fitfully funny tale in which crusading young people take on...

    By the halfway point in this slice of cinematic comfort food you’ll be finding it hard to believe that it was directed by the man who made Donnie Brasco. And on a CV that boasts two Hugh Grant films, Mike Newell’s adaptation of a bestseller set in...

    This fun, pacy addition to the dino disaster franchise doesn’t do much that’s particularly new – though what it does, it does with panache. That’s largely thanks to gifted Spanish director JA Bayona, who brings to bear the macabre touches that m...
