Melbourne Cinémathèque


Australia's pre-eminent film society dedicated to screening significant works of international cinema.

Melbourne Cinémathèque 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 presents celebrated and less well known works of international cinema in their original format and in new restorations.

In 2021, the program will be released 4-6 weeks in advance of screenings. Screenings occur weekly until mid-December, with a four-week break midyear.

Admission to Melbourne Cinémathèque session is open to Cinémathèque members only. Memberships are available for three consecutive weeks (from date of purchase) or for a full year. After a membership is purchased, admission to sessions is free. Due to COVIDSafe guidelines, members will need to book sessions in advance via the ACMI website or at the Tickets and Information desk.

Bookings for the following week of screenings will be available from 12pm on the Thursday prior.
