Bolzano Cinema Museum

South Tyrol is not only a popular film location for numerous productions, but also offers its own Cinema Museum.

If you are a film or cinema fan, we recommend a trip to the Industrial Zone South in Bolzano (Bozen). There, a small paradise has been created which is dedicated to theatre, cinema and television as well as its technology. Behind the museum is Natalino Bernato, a passionate cinema fan who was active in the theatre and cinema world of South Tyrol. He fulfilled his dream and exhibits a number of rarities, some of them still functioning, in some rooms.

The Bolzano Cinema Museum - “Kinomuseum Bozen” in German, “Cinè Museum Bolzano” in Italian - presents objects from the beginnings of cinema in the 1920s to the present day, most of them come from the region. Behind every exhibit there is a story: you can admire projection devices from the past as well as film cutters and assembly facilities, historical documents, posters and documentaries. The Cinema Museum is also a popular venue for film series, lectures and castings.

By the way: South Tyrol is a popular film location. Especially the rugged Val Senales valley with its glacier was already setting for “The Dark Valley” with Sam Riley or “Everest” with Jake Gyllenhaal and Keira Knightley. And how to reach the museum? The rooms are hidden in the Via Johann Kravogl road, in the middle of workshops and office buildings in the Industrial Zone South in Bolzano. Parking facilities are available, also the city bus no. 18 passes by there.
