Cinema Nova

Cinema Nova

Melbourne's favourite independent.

Cinema Nova was established in August 1992 as a collaboration between two landmark Australian independent cinemas - the Longford Cinema in South Yarra and the Valhalla Cinema in Richmond and Westgarth, and opened as a twin theatre.

Since that time we've grown to become the most popular independent cinema in the southern hemisphere, with 16 theatres showcasing the best in quality indie, Australian and arthouse film. An essential part of the Lygon Street scene, Cinema Nova is a part of Carlton's cultural fabric and offers Melbourne more films and in-cinema events than any other exhibitor.

Our Meet the Filmmaker and curated events programs allow our audience to experience film up close and personally, while also making going to the movies more exciting.

From our famous house-made choc tops - voted the best in Melbourne by The Age - to our Nova Bar + Kitchen, and our indulgent Nova Deluxe and High Tea in-cinema dining sessions, you can combine your love of cinema with the best in food and beverages.

Cinema Nova: where there is more on screen, more choice, more to enjoy.

We're located at 380 Lygon Street, Carlton in the Lygon Court Shopping Piazza between Elgin and Faraday Streets. Our entrance is up the escalator at the Lygon Street end of the piazza.
