There's always something eye-opening to find at Australia's national museum of TV, film, games, art and digital culture
ACMI is much more than meets the eye. Sure, it's home to Australia's largest moving image collection and the fascinating and fun Screen Worlds permanent exhibition – but did you also know it also houses cinemas, blockbuster exhibitions, talks, events and a shop?
In fact, ACMI has hosted some of the most exciting and popular exhibitions in Melbourne over the last decade. What makes these so well visited is often their broad, pop culture appeal; recent examples include international big-hitters like Wallace & Gromit and Friends, David Bowie Is and DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition.
As a cinema the ACMI has regular showings of Australian, independent and classic films, and also plays host to film festivals including the Melbourne Queer Film Festival. For movies a little more niche than your average multiplex this is the place to go.
