melbourne cinémathèque



Film lovers who are despairing at the high price of cinema tickets in this country should get themselves hooked up with the Melbourne Cinémathèque. This not-for-profit organisation began its life in 1948 (then known as the Melbourne University Film Society) and screens ‘significant films from the history of international cinema’, as its website states.

During the Cinémathèque season (Feb–Dec), two films are screened every Wednesday evening at the ACMI cinemas in Federation Square, usually focussing on the work of one director per evening. To attend screenings you need to buy an MC membership – either an annual membership ($119 full / $99 concession) or a ‘mini-membership’, which gets you admission to four consecutive Wednesday nights ($25 full / $20 concession). Either way, you get an amazing deal as well as access to the world’s best films presented in their original mediums and formats.

Check the website for screening details.
