COVID-19 Updates


Well, here we go again. From the last session Thursday 15 July, we’ll be closing our doors in compliance with the Victorian Government’s impending snap lockdown announcement.

All ticketholders for sessions during the lockdown will be contacted by our staff. Ticketholders for Dreamscapes: A Static Vision Festival will be contacted by the organisers about rescheduled dates for the festival. Tickets and passes will be valid for the new dates.

Sessions for our David Lynch, Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Jean-Pierre Melville Retrospectives and Met Opera have been rescheduled, with all tickets still valid.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through bookings. Stay safe out there, and we’ll see you on the other side of Lockdown V. 


We'll be in touch with you as soon as possible to provide comp credit tickets for all tickets pre-purchased online for sessions from Friday 16 July - Wednesday 27 July. For any bookings made in person at the box office please contact us here to organise your comps.

Due to the circumstances and staff working from home, there may be a slight delay in our response time. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
