MIFF Festival Lounge at the Forum Theatre
154 Flinders Street
Situated in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD on Flinders Street, the Forum Theatre is instantly recognisable by its unique Gothic-Romanesque architecture. Formerly the State Theatre, the Forum Theatre opened in 1929 with the largest seating capacity of any theatre in Australia. Since then the venue has been divided into two separate venues. Downstairs, Forum I is famous for its large stage, mesmerising proscenium and signature cabaret style booths. Upstairs, Forum II is a smaller venue with tiered seating, small stage, surround sound and cinema size screen.
