Thessaloniki Cinema Museum

The Cinema Museum was founded in 1997 when Thessaloniki was the Cultural Capital of Europe. It is housed in the industrial design listed building in Warehouse A, on Pier A in Thessaloniki port.

Here you will have the opportunity to explore the history and evolution of early 20th century Greek cinema and the experiments by the vanguard Manakia brothers up to the so-called "spring of the new Greek cinema” at the end of the 20th century.

Among the interesting exhibits are the fine collections of cinema billboards of HELLAFFI and Constantine Arvanitidis, the collection of Nicholas and Catherine Bililis which includes film cameras and projectors, developers, reels and photos from Greek movies and the Papadopoulos collection with movies, newsreels, cartoons, trailers and documentaries from America and various countries in Europe, including Greece.
