Cinephile Room

Cinephile Room

Update 4.2.0 brings us the Cinephile Room next to the Pool in the Basement. You must be level 24 to open this room. The Cinephile Room requires Movie Tickets to Search.

Wow! I feel like this is a dirty word! So of course I looked it up! So, this is another passionate room for GI!


Cinephilia is the term used to refer to a passionate interest in cinema, film theory and film criticism. The term is a portmanteau of the words cinema and philia, one of the four ancient Greek words for love. A person with a passionate interest in cinema is called a cinephile or cinemaphile.

Cinephile Room Assembly

You must collect 2 each of the following items from the Magic Lantern Collection to Assemble the Cinephile Room. You can get these items by banishing the Snatchin Comedian and Movie Buff Snatchin.

  • Edison’s Kinetoscope
  • The Lumière Brothers’ Device
  • Rare Filmstrip Projector
  • Classic Film Projector
  • Digital Projector


The Magic Lantern Collection, currently number 6 in the list, is what is needed to open the Cinephile Room. So, if you obtain one by banishing a roamer and you give it to a friend asking for it on your wall it will be deducted from your inventory.

If you do not have any in your inventory yet and you get a wall request you will NOT be able to give them.

What miracle of the gaming heavens is it going to take to find an Edison’s kinetoscope?!?


    Are we friends in the game? I can send you one. It’s from collection 517 and come from one of the two Cinephile Roamers. Put it on your wish list.


      Thank you. What is your friend code?


        MsWillow cf1daa


          Thank you!

Nancy Cramer

Im on Some Like it Hot trying to find storm phenomenon Its not eye of the storm. Any ideas THANKS


    When you put the Storm phenomena in the Bathhouse does it not show as Findable?

      Nancy Cramer

      yes so if I don’t get the item I have to keep doing the storm?


In “Some Like it Hot,” are the Frappe and Ice Cream collection items? If so, which collection? I did a search on your table and did not find them. Can they be gifted?


    I don’t see any comments on them so they must not be collection items. When you get the room in the mode you need it to find the items tap on the item in the search list and see if it gives a collection name.


      Thank you for the feedback. I was looking for other options since I’ve run low on broomsticks for the Wine Cellar. It will be a while before I finish this one. I keep reminding myself that it’s a marathon and not a sprint. 😀


Where do I find the coals to banish the snatchin boiler operator?


    Just keep searching ??? any rooms! They will drop. Use a turtle of luck to help!


Spielburg’s camera not in electric shock mode. Need one for step 12 of Cinephile quest string., the Old and the New. Accidentally charged collection too soon before I knew better. Can it be found anywhere else, or do items change for each room in electric shock?


Anyone know the best way to get movie tickets? Can’t seem to get enough to explore the cinephile room for quests..


New snatching have disappeared. Any idea as to why?


In quest It’s Unbelievable, is the only way to find Journal of Impossible Things by just banishing phenomena? The Journal doesn’t show in list of findable items??


    I’ve banished phenomenan 20 times and it won’t give it. Anyone else having this problem?


    I’m having this problem currently… it doesn’t show up no matter how many phenomena I banish, and I can’t even find it in any collection. Did you ever find an answer to this?


      I think I found mine right away by exploring a phenomena. Some of these things seem to take one person one try and others forever! Good Luck, there is no other way to get it as it’s not a collection item.

    Ronda Meyers

    I was frustrated with that quest also. Banished phenom in cinephile several times, no jpurnal. I submitted a ticket, and they said you won’t get it on the first try. I think I got it on about the 5th or 6th try, with turtle and magnet running.


Is anyone else having a problem with quest 20 cinema paradise? I have tried several basement rooms and the items do not show in the room’s infantry as items usually do


Does anyone know what basement room to search in electric shock curse for quest #8?


    I found it in wine cellar.




    In boiler room
    Not sure where else
