Home to our ever-popular CineTrivia, with spectacular terrace views overlooking Lygon Street, the Nova Bar & Kitchen is the perfect place to relax before or after your film. 

Open from 10am until late, our kitchen lunch menu is available from 12pm to 5pm weekdays, with a dinner menu available from 5pm weeknights, and all day on the weekends, featuring delicious vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. 

Renowned chef Andreas Papadakis (‘Tipo 00’) crafted our original menu with Nova faves, croquettas & spiced calamari, still featuring on the menu. Freshly-made toasted sandwiches and tasty specials are available daily, in addition to appetizing cakes and pastries. So whether you fancy a delectable Cheeseboard, Mushroom Stew, Slow Cooked Braised Beef, Cauliflower Arancini or iconic Nova Salad, our in-house chefs will ensure your tastebuds are dancing.

Featuring a diverse choice of red, white and sparkling varietals, the Nova Bar & Kitchen wine list is the best selection to be found in an Australian cinema. Licenced from 12noon daily, every beverage can be taken into the cinema! An exceptional offering of boutique beers - many brewed locally - is also available, along with a tempting cocktail list.
