NMIC, the only museum in India dedicated to cinema is an institution of national importance and was inaugurated by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi earlier in January this year, at Films Division complex, Mumbai.
This exclusive Museum has been set up to showcase the rich cinematic history and heritage of India and encapsulates India’s socio-cultural history and evolution through cinema. The Museum is housed in two buildings – the New Museum Building and the 19th century heritage structure, GulshanMahal – both at the Films Division complex. The Museum showcases history of India Cinema with the help of rare artefacts, diorama, costumes, properties and digital elements including kiosks, interactive digital screens, information based screen interfaces, etc.
Under the MoU, BookMyShow will provide a technical solution for offline and online sale of tickets to NMIC. It will give first time visitors offers for the Museum to encourage new visitors to the Museum. BMS will send e-mailers and push notifications from time to time to their database of users so that they can plan a visit to NMIC at own convenience. As a special gesture, promotions on Facebook, Instagram etc. will be done by BookMyShow free of cost apart from promoting NMIC on its website to help increase footfalls in the Museum.
