This is a little treasure for a Monday, $7 seniors tickets,huge theatre, comfortable seats, and good movies. The rest of the centre is also worth a hour or two looking at old movie and tv footage, once again very good value and a very pleasant coffee shop.

This place is amazing for all the family. Lots of great exhibits about contemporary film and television. All interactive. We could have stayed for hours. Such fun.

There was so much to see - videos with explanations of who, how and when costumes were designed and how they decide on the images they wanted to portray. There was something for every age group and also plenty to interest the men. I just adored Scarlett O'Hara s green curtain dress. If you get the opportunity to go -... More

The Dreamworks exhibition was fantastic. Well set out. Loved the way the kids could make their own animation. Top marks to the staff, school holidays and you all managed to be polite, friendly and have smiles on your faces. This big kid loved it!

If you're into film you will see here why Australians are good at it. You don't have to know the history, Australians have been making films for a long time. [Robbery Under Arms was one of the first Australian feature films made in 1907.]

I am a teacher who recently attended the Screen Worlds exhibition at ACMI with my grade 5/6 class on a school excursion. The exhibition was excellent in itself, but I couldn't help noticing there was one member of staff who kept scolding my students in a contradictory, mocking and unfair way. When I confronted him, he simply brushed me out... More

Theres just so much going on there. I went there for the Dreamworks Animation event that will be ongoing until October 2014. And I went to explore the centre of moving image and i was blown away with everything that was in there.

Loved the DreamWorks exhibition. If you are an adult go early before the school groups arrive - much quieter. Helpful and friendly staff.

This venue is hitting its stride. In its early days it seemed hard-edged and uninviting. Now it has a shop, a café-bar, an array of unusual and not necessarily commercial movies, a permanent exhibition about the moving image, interactive attractions, and big temporary exhibitions in its vast basement. Some of the temporary exhibitions have been very popular and family friendly,... More

We visited the Dreamworks exhibit currently showing at the ACMI. The teens enjoyed it as they could directly relate to the works on show. I really enjoyed the free exhibits even more.
