The House of the Stars remained standing and was declared a Municipal and National Historic Monument, thanks to the efforts of a group of neighbors and former employees of Lumiton Studios, so that the house could also become a museum.
The great figures of the national golden cinema, directors, producers, photographers, technicians, actors, actresses, scriptwriters, rested, created, celebrated there, and they were protagonists of the birth of our film industry. This is how La Casa de las Estrellas gets its name. To visit it is to set foot in the fundamental history of our cinema.
Through its permanent exhibition LUMITON: EL SELLO QUE MARCÓ EL RUMBO DEL CINE NACIONAL(LUMITON: THE SEAL THAT MARKED THE PATH OF NATIONAL CINEMA) you can travel through the history of the gong seal.
The archive is made up of different collections: photographic, film, Lumiton posters, Argentine and international film posters, low-pass film equipment, video in various formats, and a sound collection. The archive seeks to preserve the memory, restore the material and make it known to the community. At the same time, it is a living archive, since it incorporates new material generated by La Usina and the community, both documentary recordings and celluloid artistically intervened in the experimental film workshops.
Access the technical data sheets of the films that were part of Lumiton’s history as a production company and watch our poster collection.
