Overview
More
The Thessaloniki Cinema Museum is housed in a landmark warehouse on the first wharf of the port of Thessaloniki, at the beginning of the old avenue along the waterfront, not far away from Aristotelous Square, in the center of the city. In Thessaloniki Cinema Museum we wish to share with you the magic of Greek cinema in a “dark room” unwinding like a huge film reel. We want you to follow the red path, that step – by – step recollects the scenes of a cinematographic fairytale, almost one hundred years of age.

An extremely well laid out and interesting museum. It focuses on Greek film which looks excellent and made us wish it was more widely available with subtitles!

Rather than visiting this museum, just walk a few more meters and go have a look at the museum of photography. Honestly not too much to see and a very cold welcome.
