Located on the LACMA campus at Wilshire and Fairfax, The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will be a world class museum and interactive space dedicated to all aspects of film. Located in the May Company building, the project will renovate that landmarked structure to include four class A galleries, two small theaters, offices, catering facilities, and a fifth floor dining and event space with panoramic views of Los Angeles.The museum’s centerpiece will be the 1,000 seat Geffen Theatre, designed to be a world premier cinema and enclosed in a spherical concrete and glass container. The theater will be capable of live broadcasting and will feature variable acoustics. Atop the theater is a second fifth floor event space. Located under a glass dome with majestic views of the mountains to the north, this space promises to be one of the most sought after venues in Los Angeles for events, receptions and private parties.The Museum is expected to open in 2020.
