What is there to do?

ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) is situated in Melbourne's Fed Square and celebrates the magnificence and potency of the world's most democratic art form—moving pictures—to inspire the next generation of creators, players, and viewers.

It  includes a cinema, two cinemas, a research centre, and an exhibition space that are dedicated to film, television, digital media, video games, and art. Everything related to film and television in Australia is displayed here..

You can find out everything about the firm by looking through the permanent exhibition. Take a look at the photographs in "Screen Worlds," the permanent exhibition. This exhibition, which has a biography that spans the ages, is unlike any other you've seen. Museum staff describe it as an exploration of the past, present, and future of moving pictures through archival footage, objects, and interactive displays.

You may witness the flickering footage of "The Story of the Kelly Gang," the world's first feature movie, which was shot in Melbourne in 1906 and displayed for the first time.

It is also possible to turn the handle of a mutoscope, an early picture show device that was used by a single individual. David Bowie, Tim Burton, and Dennis Hopper are all popular exhibits at ACMI.

There is a diverse range of films , including limited-release films, which are screened. You will not see this film on the big screen at your neighborhood multiplex

ACMI is not particularly crowded, and there are many locations to stop and rest.
