The Girona Cinema Museum Girona takes visitors on a journey through the history of cinema, showcasing the collection of Tomàs Mallol i Deulofeu, a Catalan photographer, promoter, and film director. In the permanent exhibition, various historical tools used in the film industry can be seen.

The museum was born from its creator’s passion for cinema, who, since the 1960s, collected different amateur cinema devices, until it became one of the most important thematic collections on an international scale; acquired by the Girona City Council in 1994.

More than 15,000 documents recount the events that have occurred over five centuries of images, from Chinese shadows to the camera of the famous Lumière brothers, through a journey through the history of moving images.
