Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

The Academy Museum is the world’s premier institution dedicated to the art and science of movies. Located on Wilshire and Fairfax in the heart of Los Angeles, the museum celebrates the past, present, and future of moviemaking. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano, the museum has restored and revitalized the historic Saban Building, formerly known as the May Company building (1939). The Saban Building’s six floors contain expansive exhibition spaces, the 288-seat Ted Mann Theater, the Shirley Temple Education Studio, special event spaces, a cafe, and a store. A new spherical addition connected to the Saban Building via glass bridges features the state-of-the-art 1,000-seat David Geffen Theater and the rooftop Dolby Family Terrace with sweeping views of Hollywood.
