The first Cinema Museum of South Tyrol, located in Bolzano, exhibits tecnology of the local cinema’s history.
Those who think only of the big blockbuster hearing the word "cinema", miss a few things. It's to say that South Tyrol is a popular film location also in Hollywood - scenes of the "Star Wars" spin-off were shot in the Dolomites, whereas Jake Gyllenhaal's "Everest" is located on the Val Senales Glacier - but also the local film landscape has much to offer. Did you know that only 16 years after the inauguration of the first "Cinematographic Theatres" in Berlin and Paris in 1895, also Caldaro had its own cinema?
The first South Tyrolean Cinema Museum can be found in the Via Johann Kravogl road in the industrial zone of Bolzano: Initiator was Natalino Bernato, who was active in the theatre and cinema world of South Tyrol for decades and who collected a great amount of rare and special objectes. Projection machines, video cameras, editing machines, flatbed editors, projectors, films and posters can be admired in the small Cinè Museum, which is completely dedicated to cinema and television technologies. Each one of the objects on display has its own story to tell. Furthermore, the Bolzano Cinema Museum organises film series, lectures and other events.
