When we think of watching a movie, the most obvious choices are the Village Cinemas, Hoyts, or Reading, as these are the common franchises in Melbourne.
There are some unique cinemas in Melbourne, which hold an important historic significance. Have you been to any and how was your experience? Which cinema was it and which movie did you watch? Why did you choose this cinema over the others?
Recently, I had a chance to visit the Cameo Cinemas in Belgrave. I wanted to watch a movie that was released in limited screens. I was pleasantly surprised. The theaters were smaller, but very neatly designed. I would never have been able to tell from the outside how many theaters were inside. The snack bar was amazing with a huge variety of items to buy (including hot food, ice-cream on a cone). The Cameo Cinemas are built in a historic building.
