MUMBAI — The National Museum of Indian Cinema will open its doors in Mumbai next month.

The 6,000 sq ft heritage building is the first phase of a proposed 50,000 square feet museum facility. The museum will be stocked with memorabilia from iconic studios like RK, Mehboob and Prasad, and also from private collections.
 
“As Indian cinema enters a new century, the National Museum of Indian Cinema coming up in Mumbai is a small tribute of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting to the great film heritage of India,” said Minister for Information & Broadcasting, Manish Tewari.
 
The ministry has also launched a National Film Heritage Mission that has been granted $100 million of funding to restore 1,050 feature films, construct vaults to store these films, and also provide training in restoration and preservation.
