Tired of the latest romantic comedy Hollywood has to offer? Want to experience a dash of culture on an otherwise dull Wednesday night? Then why not head down to the Melbourne Cinematheque which runs films every Wednesday night at ACMI which is located at Federation Square (right opposite Flinders Street Station). You can easily take the train in, otherwise parking is availabe at the Federation Square Car Park.
A mini membership for four consecutive weeks is only $22 for adults and $17 for concession which means you can see up to eight movies. For those who are extra keen, a yearly membership is also available and allows you to see all films shown during the year as often as you like.
Cinemas are comfortable and spacious, and popcorn and refreshments can still be purchased from the ACMI lounge. They even serve tasty meals for those who want to grab a bite as well as a flick.
You can book online or check out the current program here. Before your movie begins I also recommend having a peek at the ACMI shop located on the Plaza level which offers a wide range of books, films and unique gift ideas for that film buff friend.
