ACMI presents The Story of the Moving Image.

From the first projections and optical illusions to the birth of film and beyond, moving images have the power to spark imagination, share stories and shape history.

Discover how inventors, innovators and artists at the turn of the 20th century wielded light, split time and captured motion, heralding a technological revolution that continues today.

Featuring ancient shadow puppets, Victorian-era magic lanterns, original cameras, iconic costumes, movie sets, sketches, clips and contemporary art, The Story of the Moving Image traverses time, countries and cultures in a mesmerising exploration of an art form that changed the world and illuminated our collective humanity.

The Story of the Moving Image is open 364 days a year, is completely free and offers deep interactive and immersive experiences to visitors of all ages.

The "best" exhibition in Melbourne by a country mile!
Highly recommended.
