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.

What’s on

Europa! Europa Film Festival

  • Film festivals

Europa! Europa Film Festival returns for a third year this February and March with a curated selection of films from across the European continent. You can expect a bumper line-up of 47 films from 28 countries that will transport you from the edge of your seat and across the European continent.  The festival will take place across Melbourne and Sydney between February 15 and March 11, serving up a smorgasbord of European films throughout the three weeks. 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 cinematic gems? The selection caters to a circus of different genres and styles, traversing drama, comedy and documentaries to capture the heartfelt, the entertaining and the thought-provoking. One of the highlights of the 2024 festival will be the opening night showing of The Promised Land, Denmark’s submission to the Academy Awards. The epic historical drama follows an impoverished 18th century war hero as he embarks on a journey to form a settlement on a harsh Danish heath.  Other picks include Freud’s Last Session, which chronicles the intellectual clash between Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis, and The Beast, which explores a near future where AI rules and emotions are perceived as a threat.  Europa! Europa Film Festival will also present
