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.

Great night out at the Lido cinemas. The staff are always friendly and happy to help. Good range of drinks and food available at the cinema and also so many great places to eat in Glenferrie rd before or after your movie.

This is an expensive ($21 per adult) boutique cinema complex. Nice booths and a few hipster food options as well as alcohol available.

Unfortunately, we ordered the nachos for $13 and they were terrible - a pack of corn chips in a cardboard tray, with a little bit of salsa and melted cheese on top - ridiculously poor quality and even worse value!

Cinema is good but not special and a large popcorn and 2 drinks were $21.

Won’t be hurrying back...

We went on New Years Eve and enjoyed the whole experience. A great selection of drinks and food from the indoor and rooftop bars . Really appreciated the blankets as it became a cool evening after sunset . Will definitely be back again for another movie . Thanks for a great evening.

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.
