Guided Tour (Adults & Children Age12+)

Movie (hi)stories


Movies tell stories – and we tell movie (hi)stories. On our guided tour you’ll find out about the early days of film production and the first cinema theatres as well as the very latest special effects and technical tricks that create stunning movie worlds.

Special effects are part of the success story of movies; in fact, it’s hard to imagine the big screen without them. Sometimes, but not always, we notice them – but do we actually know anything about the technology that’s behind it all?

On this guided tour we’ll take a look at how a movie is made complete with special effects, step by step, from pre-production to the actual shooting on set right through to post-production. For that, we’ll take a historical look at how film technology evolved and drop by the media.worlds exhibition area.
