Admission to The Melbourne Cinémathèque requires a membership.
Memberships can be obtained online at the ACMI website, or from the ACMI box office before screenings. Terms and conditions apply.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 2021
New booking system
Due to COVIDSafe guidelines, bookings are required for all screenings. Patrons will be able to book into either the Monday or Wednesday night screening (but not both). Due to limited seating, and out of courtesy to other members, patrons are asked to only book for screenings they are certain to attend.
Bookings for the following week of screenings will be available from 10am Thursday prior, on the ACMI website or at the Tickets and Information desk. For the first week of screenings, bookings open early on Tuesday 6 April for existing members. From 10am Thursday 8 April, new memberships will be released for sale and new members can book into the first week of screenings.
When booking online or at the ACMI Tickets and Information desk, members aren’t asked to pick their seat number. Please arrive early to screenings so that you can have your choice of seats.
All current annual memberships will be extended by 13 months. The Cinémathèque has absorbed a number of ongoing operational costs while closed during lockdown. If you would like to contribute to help us remain a strong and financially viable membership-based film society, you can voluntarily pay for your extension (this link will expire on 7 April).
Current members will receive an email soon indicating the new expiry date of their membership and how to book into the first week of screenings. Once you have received this email, you will be able to collect your new membership card from the ACMI Tickets and Information desk.
