This should now be considered a historical record as of November 2012 the Cinema Complex has been developed into shops accessible via new escalators and just the office remains as a ticket office for Cantopop touring singers.
200 Bourke Street, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
$12 full price
$10 with Chinatown Cinema student card.
Open Wednesday to Monday (closed Tuesdays)
Special midnight screenings on Friday and Saturday for some films.
The best place to see Hong Kong and other Asian movies.
It's hard to believe that there are only 2 full time Chinese movie theatres outside of China.
The cinema is upstairs and adjoins several speciality shops and a Chinese restaurant called Red Silks.
What makes it my favourite cinema in Melbourne is that I have seen about 60 Hong Kong movies there as they used to screen double features for the price of a single ticket.
They also have a small selection of Hong Kong movies to buy on video which is rare now days as most places sell them on DVD only.
Once a month there is a special double feature put on by the person who runs the 'Heroic Cinema' website http://www.heroic-cinema.com
