Due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Australia and the resulting restrictions imposed by the Federal and State governments, Cinema Nova has been temporarily closed until further notice. We will keep you up to date any developments and please stay safe.
Showing many award-winning and lesser-known art-house films since 1992, Cinema Nova is the go-to destination to see culturally significant indie and foreign films on the big screen.
