Each branch of art has its own forms of expression. In the historical process, however, different branches of art induced and supported each other. The relationship between architecture and cinema exemplifies this fact. As a widespread and effective mass media, cinema has emerged as a means of recording the movement phenomenon in spaces. In cinema, different choices are made for spaces, such as “real space”, “reproduction of a real space”, and “fictional space”, depending on the goal. Historical environment and historical places occupy an important part in this group. They seem to be frequently preferred in recent times. This preference is of great importance in terms of documentation and introduction of cultural spaces and raising awareness in this regard. Thus, this study aims to ensure that the cinematographic effect is used in a more conscious and correct manner in the introduction of cultural spaces. As a result of literature research and movie analyses, the criteria to pay attention to in the production of works were identified for this purpose. In the analysis, the “analytical hierarchy method” was used, which enables the evaluation of numerical data. As a result of the study, the parameters to be considered were determined in order to obtain more effective cinematographic works in introducing cultural spaces, and these parameters were ranked according to their degree of importance. The conscious use of these results in new cinematographic works to be produced with similar goals will make a significant contribution to the introduction and documentation of these spaces and will help to raise awareness in this regard.
