Good news for film history lovers! The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the group responsible for the Oscars) has struck up a deal with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to create a film museum in its newest building, a former May Company store now known as “LACMA West.” While nothing is finalized yet, the two organizations have been developing plans for fundraising, exhibitions, designs, and more. The statement says that the Academy will have autonomy over the museum and its contents, which is good news because no one is in a better position to get historical movie memorabilia than the AMPAS. Would you plan a trip to the museum once it’s opened? We sure would.
