ISTANBUL CINEMA MUSEUM
Istanbul Cinema Museum offers nearly 150 years of history and Yeşilçam's cinema history to visitors with the restoration of the Atlas Cinema in Turkey. Permanent and traveling exhibitions with an extensive history information from the first films shot in Turkey to the cameras used, offers a fun experience with interactive applications. Rediscover this historical structure as you embark on an exciting historical journey at the Atlas Cinema, which was once one of the most important movie theaters in Istanbul.
The digital memory pool application, which is used for the first time in a cinema museum in the world, includes 8 thousand 406 films, 31 thousand 106 actors, directors, screenwriters, producers and cinema workers. In this interactive application, the contents of the movie archive created by Turkish Cinema Studies (TSA) meet with the visitors with an interesting experience on a horizontal interactive video wall with six screens.
With Cinema Atlas, an interactive map application, you can discover the movie theaters that were opened in Istanbul, films and newspaper clippings from the late 1800s to the first years of the Republic.
From Camera to Story
There are four units in the Camera to Story installation, exhibiting four cameras which recorded important events in the history of cinema, describing the technical characteristics of the cameras that shaped the movie sector and the films shot with these cameras. The directional speakers by Holosonics used in these units offer a unique experience with audio narration that you can only hear while in front of the unit.
Bringing green screen technology to visitors, the installation offers the opportunity to capture interesting shots by taking part in iconic scenes from local and foreign films. Choose from a variety of scenes, pose and share with loved ones with the touchscreen.
DISCOVER THE HISTORY OF CINEMA
Magic of the Screen
In this unit, which brings examples from Turkish cinema and the world together, there are compositions of movie scenes brought together within the framework of popular themes on a three-curtain cinema screen with Holosonics directional speaker. You can observe the common aspects of the topics, emotions and scenes that are most commonly covered in the history of cinema, and sometimes the differences.
Augmented Reality Room
In the Augmented Reality-supported photography exhibition, which includes frames from the well-known films of Turkish cinema, you can see the movie scenes in the frames come to life with the tablets. On the model of the Grand Bazaar, the spatial animations of local and foreign films shot in this historical place and the sections of the films are waiting for the visitors to be discovered with Augmented Reality.
Yeşilçam On the Phone
In this unit, which includes antique telephones, visitors who lift the handsets encounter various telephone scenes from Yeşilçam films that have appeared in Turkish cinema.
Interactive Sound and Image Assembly Room
In this unit, where the montage techniques used in films are exposed, visitors can experience making their own films by transferring images from their phones and using modern editing techniques.
You can see the 3D Cinema installation, where ten-minute sections from two important works of Turkish cinema can be viewed three dimensionally, as well as the holograms of four film scenes featuring important actors such as Adile Naşit and Münir Özkul.
Karagöz and Hacivat have an earlier place in the history of cinema as our traditional shadow play, which has an important place in our childhood. Within this installation, visitors can create their own shadow play. You can discover the funny dialogues between Karagöz and Hacivat with the digital application through the touch screen.
In the Exterior Led Application on the facade of the building, an artistic work with portraits of various actors prepared with artificial intelligence invites visitors to the museum on Istiklal Street.
In addition, additional information can be obtained with the video narrations in many showcases about the objects exhibited and their historical importance.
The installation, which visitors will encounter while climbing the stairs, reflects an artistic work and the phenomenon of motion in the cinema from the beginning with films in an analog manner, transforming us into a tool that carries us to the future. It makes a reference to technology, which only gains sense when people enter the equation.
