Netflix and chill no more. Lido Cinema’s new rooftop opens tonight, and the full film program has just been released.

The 100-seat rooftop cinema in Hawthorn is set up with striped chairs and beanbags, and will have food and drinks available, too.

The films aside, the main event will be the great view. As Lido co-owner Eddie Tamir told Broadsheet last month: “You get all the immediate scenery from Hawthorn and Kew: period buildings, spires and rooftops, but you can also see the CBD”.
