Academy Museum Of Motion Pictures
The film academy is drumming up excitement for its museum set to open in 2019 next to LACMA.
The visual centerpiece of the museum, a glass and concrete theater, is coming together in a big way.
It’s already about two years behind schedule, has blasted through its original budget, and is likely to keep racking up costs, says The Hollywood Reporter.
A new construction firm will soon begin work on the much-delayed museum. It should be ready to open by 2019.
Under construction now, the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, once finished, is poised to dramatically alter the corner of 6th and Fairfax with a giant orb-shaped theater designed by architect Renzo Piano.
