ACMI 20th Anniversary

October 29, 2022 - October 30, 2022

ACMI, Australia’s national museum of screen culture, is celebrating 20 years since opening its doors in Melbourne’s iconic Fed Square, with exclusive birthday offers on the last weekend of October.

Visitors can access half-price entry to the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition Light: Works from Tate’s Collection and all cinema sessions, plus free choc tops and cookies until stocks last.

ACMI had its beginnings as the State Film Centre of Victoria and was reincarnated in 2002 as the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. The building was further re-shaped and reinvigorated with the opening of its flagship ongoing exhibition Screen Worlds in 2009 and its re-emergence in 2021 as a multiplatform museum, following a $40 million renewal funded by the Victorian Government and philanthropic partners.

To commemorate ACMI’s 20th birthday, a range of exclusive merchandise will be available in the ACMI Shop from October 24. This will include the new publication The Story of the Moving Image, reflecting on ACMI’s centrepiece exhibition and the history of screen culture, plus a commemorative tote bag and scented anniversary candle that’s been crafted to evoke positive memories of an old-school picture theatre.
