On a rainy afternoon we called into this museum and spent about 2 hours looking around. It was very interesting especially if you like Marlena Dietrich

Has a museum of the history of film on one level, and film production on the second. The exhibits were fascinating, especially the old pre-film methods of moving images. Also has a couple of cinemas for specialist films. Worth a visit for the film lovers.
