Constructed in 1929, this architectural gem was envisioned by acclaimed ‘picture palace’ architect John Eberson from the United States, collaborating with the local firm Bohringer, Taylor & Johnson. Originally conceived as an “Atmospheric theatre,” its interior was crafted to resemble a tranquil Florentine walled garden, featuring a celestial cerulean-blue ceiling adorned with twinkling lights, reminiscent of a twilight sky.

Renamed the Forum Theatre in 1962, the venue underwent a transformation into two separate cinemas in 1963 before being repurposed for religious services for a period. However, since 1995, it has thrived as the vibrant live music and events space known as Forum Melbourne, affectionately referred to as The Forum.

The Forum theatre stands as one of Melbourne’s premier venues, providing a distinctive evening experience with its stunning neo-gothic and classical architecture, ensuring guests enjoy the utmost comfort.
