Parking bays are available to the left and right of the Cameo.  There is also a car park located behind SAFEWAY’s should those be full.  Unrestricted street parking is available after 6pm Mon – Fri and after 12pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

The cinema OPENS 10-15 minutes BEFORE the start of the first session and closes 5-10 minutes AFTER the last session ends.  The times will vary from week to week.

MOVIE SCHEDULES are determined on Tuesdays for films opening on Thursday of the same week. Schedules are posted on the Cameo Cinemas website by Tuesday evening. Better still, sign up for our weekly NEWSLETTER and add us to your FAVOURITES. Or join us on FACEBOOK for weekly updates.

Digital projection is coming to the foreground. New technology now means we have the capabilities to screen fantastic quality high definition digital content. This superior format means no more scratchy or jumping prints and greater dynamic range with surround sound. This is also the basis for the new 3D format. The Cameo is currently equipped with 2 cinemas in this format with more cinemas coming soon.

The length of time any film will play at Cameo Cinemas is based on the amount of business the film generates, contractual obligations and time of the year. Basically, the more popular a film is with patrons, the longer it will play. There is no way to predict exactly how long a movie will play. Use our website to get information on what films will be playing up to five days in advance.

Unfortunately it is not possible for us to play every film released because we do not have enough screens. Our programming policy is to present films of distinction to audiences of discernment. You can expect to see a mix quality arthouse and selected mainstream movies all year round and we do focus on kids and family titles over the school holiday periods.

Tickets

This service is not currently available. Coming Soon.

Once session times are listed on our website, tickets can be purchased from the box office in advance of the film's opening. We recommend for the most popular films, during the weekends and holidays, that you plan to arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the advertised start time or drop in during the day and purchase early.

Purchasing tickets in advance guarantees you a seat for each ticket purchased, however, we do not have allocated/or reserve seating policy for all sessions. Highly popular films will generate longer lines as shows sell out quickly. We recommend you arrive 15-20 minutes before start time so you can select your favourite seat.

MOVIE GIFT VOUCHERS are available from our Box Office and valid for 12 months from date of purchase - no restrictions. Gift Vouchers can be purchased from the box office, over the phone or from our online store. Please see our {linkStart:Ticket-Prices}Ticket Information{linkEnd:Ticket-Prices} page for further information.

We do not accept COMPETITOR VOUCHERS (Hoyts, Village, Palace, Greater Union etc). We do accept THIRD PARTY vouchers from the ENTERTAINMENT BOOKLET as per conditions contained within the offer.

Cameo cinemas currently accepts Credit Card and Savings account payments only (no Cheque accounts) at the Candy Bar or Box Office. We have a WESTPAC ATM machine located out the front of our cinema which accepts all major cards. There are also ATMs located down the main street of Belgrave.

Tuesday is CHEAP DAY at Cameo Cinemas - the best movies at the best price all day! Not available on Public Holidays. No Free List, vouchers, offers or promotions accepted.

SPECIAL EVENTS are alternative content, rather than filmed entertainment (ie. Live Sports, Concerts, Documentaries, Opera, Festivals etc) and will usually only screen a limited number of times. Each SPECIAL EVENT will be advertised as such. Special admission prices and conditions apply: No Free List, No Concessions, No Offers or Promotions etc).
