About Melbourne Cinémathèque

Melbourne Cinémathèque is the largest and longest-running film society in Australia. The organisation started out in 1948 as the Melbourne University Film Society (MUFS) and changed its name to Melbourne Cinémathèque in 1984.  It is self-administered, volunteer-run, not-for-profit and membership-driven. 

The Melbourne Cinémathèque aims to screen films in the medium they were created, the way they would have originally screened. 

Admission to Melbourne Cinémathèque session is open to Cinémathèque members only. After a membership is purchased, admission to sessions is free and no additional tickets are required.  Memberships are available for three consecutive Wednesdays or for a full year.
