Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

There's always something eye-opening to find at Australia's national museum of TV, film, games, art and digital culture

UPDATE: The Australian Centre for the Contemporary Image is getting a huge facelift after a big donation from the Victorian government, but it means the centre is closed until mid-2020 to undergo the redevelopment.

The ACMI cinema lives on, however, with screenings continuing at the Treasury Theatre and RMIT's Capitol Theatre while the redevelopment is on. The cinema is known for having regular showings of Australian, independent and classic films, and also plays host to film festivals including the Melbourne Queer Film Festival. For movies a little more niche than your average multiplex this is the place to go.
