A temple to cinema
Inaugurated in September 2021 in the world’s film capital, the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures is a must-see for all those passionate about film.
It is the largest museum dedicated to filmmaking in the United States. Located on Los Angeles’ Miracle Mile, the museum is immediately recognizable by its glass dome, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano who also fully renovated the 28,000 square metre (300,000 square feet) building. Inside are over 4,500 square metres (50,000 square feet) of gallery space for temporary and permanent exhibitions, two film theatres, including the 1,000-seat David Geffen Theater, an educational studio and areas for public events and ceremonies.
