Another recent change: The team behind Sydney’s beloved Golden Age Cinema & Bar and Melbourne’s Rooftop Cinema, brothers Barrie, Bob & Chris Barton, have taken over the beautiful Art Deco style Lorne Theatre on Victoria’s Surf Coast.

Since 1937 the cinema has operated within spitting distance of the beach, screening almost 90 years' worth of films to locals and holiday goers, including the Barton’s, who spent their childhoods holidaying in the seaside town.

The now 550-seat cinema reopened on 1st December 2023 for a pop-up summer season that will last until Easter 2024 when it closes once again. This time for an extensive renovation under the watch of Heritage Victoria. The renovation will be highlighting its existing historic features, while updating the seating, lighting, acoustics, snacks & programming. A licensed bar will also be installed. It would seem that the future for the Lorne Theatre is now assured.
