Rediscover your Arts Centre Melbourne.

A mechanical ballet. A lounge in a theatre. A pop-up performance in a window. A chess board that comes to life.

The stage has been reimagined and favourite places are set for new experiences.

Each has been created with the health and safety of our community at its centre. We are following all the recommendations from the Victoria Government. Please respect and comply with them while enjoying your visit. See our reopening FAQ for more information.
