The Main Square

ACMI is your museum of screen culture. Navigate the universe of film, TV, videogames and art with ACMI.

Located in the heart of Melbourne’s Fed Square, ACMI (formerly Australian Centre for the Moving Image) celebrates the wonder and power of the world’s most democratic artform – fostering the next generation of makers, players and watchers.

ACMI offers exhibitions, cinemas, an incredible gift shop, and a new destination dining experience, Hero, with chef Karen Martini at the helm. Entry to ACMI is free, as is the interactive exhibition The Story of the Moving Image – open 364 days a year. On arrival you can collect The Lens, a free, handheld device that allows you to explore, collect and discover a universe of new films, TV shows, videogames and art to watch, play and experience. Simply tap on the objects and experiences you enjoy as you move through the exhibition, and log in later to see your online collection and discover even more about the world of screen culture.
