    Be sure to catch David Bowie Is, on tour from London's V&A until November '15. A totally immersive collection of sound, film and costumes from Bowie's career.

    The interactive nature of the ACMI is great for a range of ages. I return here every trip to Melbourne with friends we are all mid 20s and enjoy it.

    Beautiful but a noisy, awkward venue for comedy

    Truly one of Melbourne's best cultural institutions. The permanent exhibit 'screen worlds' is excellent, so many film festivals, and lets not forget the Cinematheque on Wednesday nights
