Australian Centre For Moving Image, Melbourne Reviews
My son just loved looking at Alice in Wonderland. So did his Great Uncle and myself (Mum). The tea room that was all projectors, protected an afternoon tea onto a table and the walls, was utterly amazing. It was really well set up, with heaps for parents/adults and children alike. My son especially enjoyed making a card and protecting it and himself into a wall. The history in the exhibit and the modern day Alice in Wonderland was very diverse, fun and interactive. Would go again if it read the next time in Melbourne.
Really cool museum to check out if you're into film and technology. The screen worlds exhibition showcases films an actors and actresses that are connected to Australia over the years. There are also many displays of old film technology and game consoles. It's a great place to take your kids, as there are many cool interactive things to do, and kid-friendly games. During the time I went there was also an Alice in Wonderland exhibit going on which was absolutely amazing. I've always been a fan of Alice and Wonderland, and they did a great job of recapping the history and making it fun for people of all ages. Definitely recommend!
I bought my ticket from a very nice staff member who acknowledged me. The staff were very kind when directing me to drop off my bag and then welcomed me with a smile. The actual exhibition was incredible. I loved the immersing experience with actual references from the movies. I loved the artworks and amazingly detailed descriptions of both the story’s development and about the creators themselves. I was also amazed from how many little activities that were available for all ages. I believe this is a great show if you want a fun time with your children or friends. Especially if you order the tea party tickets.
Great place. Always lots of good stuff and interesting exhibits etc. Including, at the shop. - A personal highlight: I saw "Tiny Colour Movies" by John Foxx performed here, way back in 2008. (After seeing his fantastic 'gig' at the Corner Hotel. 🎶 😊).
Great place for a school excursion, or a day out with your family. The kids will love it. Very interactive and interesting with a bit of history of Australian cinematography and movie making in general. Some of the rooms are worth visiting and there are lots of games you can play.
