Motion-Picture Museum Plans Taking Shape

Kelly Brougher is the new director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Oscars people, in Los Angeles. The museum will include a large, spherical theater being designed by Renzo Piano, to provide a grandiose home for movie premieres. There will also be an exhibition space to showcase the history of film. Brougher explains further in this article. He says emphatically that the place is NOT a theme park: AMPAS has always been a bit snooty, hasn’t it?
