It's a movie museum! The Cinémathèque québécoise has the largest collection of film, television and video archives in Canada, along with posters, photos, equipment, costumes and props. Its mediatheque is one of North America's biggest film documentation centres. The Cinémathèque screens over 1,500 films and videos, from all periods and all over the world per year.

The Cinémathèque created two specialized galleries in 1997, Raoul-Barré Hall for permanent exhibits and Norman-McLaren Hall for temporary exhibits, thus enabling the public to see a variety of locally produced or travelling shows, often designed and created or adapted by the Cinémathèque.

Since 2006, the Cinémathèque has played a crucial role as coordinator of the legal deposit of Quebec films, a mandate entrusted to it by Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec.
