I bloody love this cinema. Five star experience and so unique. I came here on Saturday night and it was happening! Rooftop and jazz bar going off. And they have cocktails that you can take into the cinema!!! I'll be a regular for sure!

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

Became a member a couple of months ago, after the cinemas opened mid 2015. Complex has 8 small cinemas, a roof-top cinema, and a jazz club on weekends. Not your usual run of the mill mainstream cinema complex. Shows films that you may not find...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

Great bar, great cinemas, affordable (especially for members) its a great cinema. Only negative was the rooftop, though it has only just opened, and am certain that the issues (radios not working - sound issues in general) will be rectified. Definitely recommend over any Hoyts...More
