The Museum of the Yugoslav Film Archive in Belgrade, founded in 1952, is a specialized film theatre showing classic works of local and international cinema.

 The film collection of the Yugoslav Film Archive represents one of the most significant and plentiful film collections in Europe.

It houses more than 85,000 copies of films, both silent and sound, black and white and colour. These are the most important archive materials and documentary footage related to the territory of the former Yugoslavia, starting with the oldest preserved local film “Crowning of King Petar I” from 1904.

 The most precious artefacts in the museum are “Magic Lantern” (1890), a camera of the Lumière brothers (1896), the head of an Edison cinetoscope (1893), the first “Pate Frer” studio film camera  (1903), the forerunner of the record player – the polyphone (1860), Edison’s phonograph (1908) and an array of cameras, projectors and sound devices.
