COVID-19 Updates

We're delighted to be open and able to welcome you back to cinemas!

 In line with public health orders, patrons will be required to show proof of vaccination or medical exemption for entry to the premises. 


The following COVID safe measurements are being observed to ensure a safe and comfortable cinema experience:

  • Patrons must show proof of vaccination or medical exemption for entry to the premises
  • Masks must be worn while inside the building for all patrons aged 8 and up; these can be slipped off while eating or drinking
  • Customers must check in using the Service Victoria check-in app
  • Hand sanitiser is available throughout the cinema
  • We accept card payments only 
  • Cleaning regimes have been heightened

Further updates will be made as information becomes available.


Proof of vaccination

Patrons aged 18 years and over are required to show proof of vaccination or exemption. You can provide this in a number of forms:

  1. Printed as a PDF - downloaded from your Medicare account through MyGov
  2. Show a digital certificate on your phone - through the Services Victoria app, the Express Plus Medicare app or saved from the Medicare app to your phone’s digital wallet
  3. A paper immunisation statement mailed to you from the Australian Immunisation Register. (Note that this can take up to 14 days to arrive).

For more information on all of the above options, see this page.

We can’t accept proof of appointment, I-promise-I’m-vaccinated, or anything other than the above three government-issued proofs.

Proof of medical exemption

Medical exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine will need to be presented as either a medical certificate OR a letter from an approved medical practitioner. 

Thanks once again for your patience, understanding and unwavering support throughout this year. Our hearts were warmed by all the messages of goodwill from our patrons. Your palpable passion for film and cinema will hold us in good stead into the future.

But most importantly, we look forward to seeing you at the cinema!
