Enjoy half-price entry to the exhibition, Light: Works from Tate’s Collection, and half-price tickets to all cinema sessions on Saturday October 29 and Sunday October 30. During this period, they will also give away free choc tops and cookies, while stocks last.
ACMI celebrates 20 years
“Since opening our doors on 26 October 2002, ACMI has become a cultural touchstone for screen culture in all its forms,” said ACMI Director & CEO Seb Chan. “Our evolution into an award-winning multiplatform museum has put us at the forefront of the international museum sector, where we remain a welcoming space for all communities to gather, explore, and make sense of what we are watching and playing.”
If you haven’t seen the Australian-exclusive exhibition, Light: Works from Tate’s Collection, this birthday weekend will be the perfect time for you to check it out. Explore over 70 works that demonstrate how iconic artists, like Claude Monet and Yayoi Kusama, used light as both a material and a subject. This exhibition spans over 200 years of art history, and it will be half-price on October 29 and 30.
If you have already seen the exhibition, why don’t you watch a movie instead? Half-price entry will apply to the films Blood and Black Lace (1964), In Fabric (2018) and The Souvenir Part II (2021).
While you’re there, be sure to grab a free choc top and cookies.
Meanwhile, the ACMI Shop will have a range of exclusive merchandise to celebrate this anniversary. This will include the new publication of The Story of the Moving Image, which reflects on ACMI’s centrepiece exhibition and the history of screen culture. There will also be a commemorative tote bag and a scented anniversary candle. This range of merchandise will be available for purchase from October 24.
