Reopening information


How are you managing capacity?

IMAX Melbourne is now functioning at full capacity. 

We still recommend that tickets are purchased online prior to arriving at the theatre.

Do we need to be fully vaccinated to attend IMAX Melbourne?

It is a government requirement that all visitors aged 18 years or over must be fully vaccinated, or have a valid medical exemption from an authorised practitioner. Patrons will be required to show their COVID-19 vaccination status or medical exemption as a condition of entry. Visitors under the age of 18 years are considered fully vaccinated.

How do I prove my vaccination status/medical exemption? 

Visitors can show their vaccination status with a COVID-19 digital certificate displayed through the Service Victoria app, Medicare app, or equivalent smartphone wallet. They can also present a printed version of their certificate or immunisation history statement, or provide evidence of a medical exemption.

Do we need to wear a mask?

Yes, from Friday Dec 24 2021 visitors aged 8 and above are required to wear face masks in all public indoor settings. Masks may be removed when eating or drinking.

What other COVIDSafe measures have you put in place?

IMAX Melbourne is adhering to all required public health advice and COVIDSafe requirements, including increased cleaning and sanitisation of the theatre and other high-use areas.  

These measures have been developed in line with public health and industry advice and align with materials shared by Work Safe, the Department of Health and Human Services Victoria and food safety education bodies such as the Australian Institute of Food Safety. 

Air quality and ventilation in the theatre is strictly controlled in order to maintain a consistent, comfortable and safe environment. Outside air is metered into the theatre in a controlled manner ensuring a constant supply of fresh air. The theatre CO2 set-point level is 600ppm, although in practice it rarely exceeds 500ppm during busy sessions.

Where can I book tickets? 

Tickets can be purchased via the Sessions & Tickets page on the IMAX website. Films can be found on the Now Showing and Coming Soon pages. 

We strongly advise that patrons purchase their tickets online prior to arriving at the theatre.
