Regrettably, we have made the decision to temporarily close the Hamilton Cinema again from Monday 3 August until further notice. This closure includes all scheduled programming and events.
Since we re-opened in early July, we've had extremely low attendance at our screenings (average of 3-4 people) and we've been forced to cancel 40% of the scheduled screenings because we had no one attend at all. COVID has affected the availability of film titles we can screen and we understand that this has likely impacted people's desire to attend the cinema, along with the increased booking and hygiene requirements. This isn't a decision we've made lightly, however it doesn't make sense from a financial perspective for Council to continue to operate the service under the current conditions.
We will closely monitor the situation in our community and review this decision over the coming months, taking into consideration advice from State Government and industry.
We appreciate that patrons and the community may have queries relating to the closure. We can still be contacted via phone and email. If you have any questions, please contact us directly on (03) 5573 0472 or via email email@example.com.
If you have any questions relating to any of Southern Grampians Shire Council's other facilities or services, please contact Council directly on 5573 0444.

Ride Like A Girl
Running time: 1hr 38mins
As a little girl, Michelle Payne dreams of the impossible: winning the Melbourne Cup - horse-racing's toughest two-mile race. The youngest of 10 children, Michelle is raised by single father Paddy. She leaves school at 15 to become a jockey and after early failures she finds her feet, but a family tragedy, followed by her own near fatal horse fall all but ends the dream. But with the love of her dad and her brother Stevie, Michelle will not give up. Against all the medical advice, and the protests of her siblings, she rides on, and meets the Prince of Penzance. Together they overcome impossible odds for a shot at the dream: a ride in the 2015 Melbourne Cup, at odds of 100 to 1. The rest is history. Ride Like A Girl is the incredible true story of Michelle Payne...
