A Melbourne cinema has dropped an advertisement centred around Australia Day after a complaint it was “propaganda”.

The ad, from the National Australia Day Council, had been played before screenings at Carlton’s popular Cinema Nova.

It featured Australians from different backgrounds, including Indigenous Australians, and spoke of the history of European settlement.

The ad concluded with: “We’re all part of the story.”

However, one complaint on Twitter has seen Cinema Nova scrap the ad.
