Following the announcement of eased restrictions in Victoria, we are working to reopen our museum under the new guidelines.
To ensure all COVIDSafe settings and capacity limits are thoroughly adhered to, ACMI will be reopening on Fri 30 July. This includes our exhibitions, cinemas and Hero.
Unfortunately, the Wed 28 Jul session for Les Enfants Terribles will be postponed.
We look forward to welcoming you back to ACMI soon. Look after yourself, and each other.
