St Michael Church, the historic cathedral in Melbourne, Australia, has long been a fixture in Australian life, hosting festivals, parades, concerts and the like.
Now, the iconic cathedral is getting a new movie-watching venue in its place.
St Michael Cinema, located on a site now owned by the State Government, will feature an 8-screen, 35mm projection screen, an outdoor cinema, and a new bar with a menu inspired by the St Michael and St Paul paintings.
“We think St Michael is one of the most iconic sites in Australia and the Melbourne experience is one that everyone should have in their backyards,” said St Michael Cinema owner and operator, Chris O’Neill.
This is the first time St Michael has had an outdoor movie-going venue, and the first in Australia to feature a beer garden.
The venue will have a seating capacity of 80 people and a seating area of 20 by 20 by 10 feet, with an attached bar and seating.
The venue is expected to open to the public in late August.
