Attraction details
Owner description: Formerly the State Theatre, the Forum Melbourne first opened in 1929 with the largest seating capacity of any theatre in Australia. Since then the venue has been divided into two separate venues. Downstairs, Forum I is famous for its unique architecture, large stage, mesmerising proscenium and signature cabaret style booths. Upstairs, Forum II is a smaller venue with tiered seating, small stage, surround sound and cinema size screen. Renowned as one of Melbourne’s most unique and best live music venues, the Forum plays host to many bands, singers, comedians and popular festivals every year. When not being used for live music, the venue comes alive as an amazing function space for events such as cocktail parties, launches and fashion events.

“Interesting facade outside and inside”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

This theatre is on Flinders Street - almost like being in Russia (with its dome twirls). Fascinating architecture. Photographer's dream as well as tourists' must see and capture for the memories. Catch a play/show here if you can

“My favourite!”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

This is my favourite theatre in Melbourne. Understated and overlooked, it's a lovely place to be. Great for music concerts and theatre alike. Go next door to Movida while you're there and make a night of it!

Thank Amy S
