The Film Museum in the City Museum
The Munich film museum was founded in 1963 as part of the City Museum. A centre for research in cinematic history, it is where important documents of German and international film history are collected and restored. Additionally, its cinema shows a different film every day; silent films are often accompanied by live piano and/or violin music, especially composed for the occasion. The programme includes classics as well as relatively unknown films and recent productions with a connection to Munich. Thus newcomers in film making have a forum here just like established producers.
Regular retrospectives document the work of a particular person or films on a certain topic. Directors, actors and film historians are often invited to give an introductory talk to a showing or to discuss the film with the audience. Normally all films are shown in their original version with German subtitles.
