Time Out says

ACMI Shop is a one-of-a-kind location to satisfy the desires of any cinephile

Negotiating the exit of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image via the gift shop is usually the final obstacle between the end of an exhibition and freedom. Once inside the shop, though, all thoughts of exodus will be promptly cut from your inner monologue. The incredible range of all things screen will have you scouring the shelves of high-quality publications on film theory, TV, digital media, cinema, and animation.

In addition to the excellent study guides, film-still postcards, DVDs, toys, gadgets, video games, scripts and biographies regularly on offer, catalogues and related publications are specially produced for each major exhibition. If you had the misfortune to miss out on an exhibition and want to get your hands on the bespoke merchandise, the ACMI Shop will sort that out for you. You may end up adding the hold music to your order as it’s all available for your purchasing pleasure.

The ACMI Shop also has the honour of being Melbourne's leading screen bookstore, as well as offering exclusive items from local artists and designers. Put simply, it's not uncommon for people to go to ACMI specifically to score something from ACMI Shop.
