Time Out Melbourne

An old ‘talkies' theatre, and then a Christian Revivalist hall, the Forum exudes history and class. The sky-blue roof stretches above the large auditorium, while large Roman-style statues and gargoyles adorn the alcoves and flank the wide concert stage. The entire venue can be seated, as it is for the Melbourne Film and Comedy Festivals, and the seats can be removed for capacity crowds.
