Cinema Nova: a Melbourne icon turns 30

Nova is celebrating three decades in the film business, and everyone's invited to take part.

For three decades, Cinema Nova has been home to off-beat, arthouse, indie and mainstream cinema-going in Melbourne – and to celebrate their 30th anniversary, they’re pushing the boat out.

This August, the beloved cinema will host a ‘Pearl Anniversary’ retrospective program and a ‘Nova Nostalgia’ gallery and exhibition. The exhibition will showcase three decades of Nova history through exclusive images, newspaper clippings and historic movie posters. The event will also include filmmaker Q&As and advance screenings.
