Overview

Lido Cinemas is a brand new eight screen artiplex showing both commercial and new release art house films in the heart of Hawthorn's bustling Glenferrie Road. Our exciting new cinema hosts special events and ensures audiences enjoy an intimate and specialised cinematic experience with films that cater for everyone. Possessing a vibrant atmosphere and boutique, individually designed cinemas, Lido's diverse program of films and events will appeal to the many different tastes of film aficionados in the local area of Hawthorn and of wider Melbourne. The Lido's unique space has lost none of its grandeur since opening in 1912 when it first opened as a cinema. Innovative Architect Aidan Halloran has combined the building's original structural features with contemporary design and technology. Preserving the building's historic charm has been at the forefront of the design process and we hope you enjoy seeking out the cinema's gorgeous original features. The Lido sees some of the world's most cutting edge technology, including a 4K projector and Dolby Atmos, contrasted beautifully in our historic venue. If you look above you'll also find Lido's impressive rooftop cinema. Our rooftop forms as the first venue in mainland Australia to have a rooftop screen attached to the cinema.

Went to this cinema with friends when in Melbourne and was bitterly disappointed. A real rabbit warren of a design that does not flow making for claustrophobic circulation spaces. The food and bar system is appalling and just does not work as it operates painfully...More

Comfy seats, huge screens and great staff. And then there's the awesome popcorn. All in all this is a great cinema. Apparently the rooftop cinema is great too

First, and last visit. The sound level in the cinema and then in the toilet and the bar were so high I came away with a headache. Must be targetting the young crowd who have already damaged their hearing with too much noise!

A nice little cinema offering a variety of movies. They also have a rooftop cinema, which looks really good. The prices are the same as everywhere else. They also offer a lot of differently themed nights showing horror or classics etc.

Great find for movie lovers. There's no need to make cinema going a bland and predictable multiplex ordeal when places like the Lido put the fun and funk back into it. Buzzing atmosphere, plenty of smiles. We watched the new James Bond film. The only...More
