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.
