Thessaloniki Cinema Museum

Thessaloniki Cinema Museum

Thessaloniki’s Cinema Museum is located at the Dock1 of Thessaloniki’s port in the Warehouse A. The museum is also participating in Thessaloniki’s film festival. It was founded in 1995 following a decision by the Organization for Thessaloniki Cultural Capital of Europe 1997. The museum’s mission is to present the Greek cinema history through displaying exhibits from all the stages of the Greek cinema until today. The intention though is to present the history of the Greek cinema and the techniques that were used during the time by presenting everything in a cinematic atmosphere and invites the visitors to wander rather just view the collections of related objects. Its collections are grouped per thematic period. Some of them have been donated to the museum while others were bought by the museum from collectors. The exhibits are presented per thematic period under beautiful lighting conditions and combinations of colors just like a film that is made up from small parts of the Greek cinema periods. Visitors who choose to have this experience also combine it with visiting the Photography’s Museum which is located in the same warehouse at the port. It is an interesting museum to be visited by film and photography lovers.
