Lido Cinemas COVID-19 Updates →

Temporary Closure

To our valued Lido Cinemas community,

We didn't think we'd be writing this again but sadly, here we are. It is with heavy hearts that we must close our doors again for a little while, effective after the last sessions of the evening on Wednesday 8 July, 2020.

This is in compliance with the Victorian state government's lockdown of the Melbourne metropolitan area for the next six weeks to curtail the spread of Covid-19.

At least this time, we have an end date to look forward to! Thank you so much for coming to the Lido and supporting us in the fortnight that we were open. We were so heartened to see your smiling faces at the box office once again. Your support has meant the world to us and your cooperation with social distancing rules in the cinema was much appreciated.

Thank you again to our loyal and hardworking staff who continue to weather the changes and uncertainty with us with professionalism and unwavering positivity.

We'll see you again – stronger and more keen for the big screen than ever – in six weeks' time.

Stay safe and well out there,

The Tamir family and Lido Cinemas team.
