Owner description: 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.

Just love Lido. Not only do they have great movies but the staff are really friendly, nothing a problem. Great food especially the piccolina ice creams - OMG divine. If you can go to one of the jazz nights - they are Gerard in. One thing to watch though is the super steep stairs but don’t worry there is an elevator.

We are lucky to have Rivoli but we are even luckier to have Lido. This is just a magnificent facility right on Glenferrie Road with a reasonable amount of parking nearby (however, it is unfortunately all two hour or less which means you can't see a long movie - stupid stupid local Council Boroondara needs to be ashamed of its sheer bastardry). I love the ambience and the theatres have very comfortable seating with a steep gradient which means not even tall people in front of you can block the view. It shows both the latest Hollywood blockbusters and the eclectic interesting independent productions.

A comfortable cinema, out of town with great selection of films.
I knew it existed but I had not managed to get there. Now I must kicking myself for not having visited sooner.
Gretchen atmosphere and we'll organised
