Document Description
The proposed Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Project would be developed on a portion of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Campus in the City of Los Angeles. The Project would rehabilitate and adaptively reuse the historically significant 1939 May Company Wilshire department store building and construct a New Wing, which would require demolition of a 1946 building addition. The Museum would be dedicated to films and filmmaking with permanent and changing exhibitions; three theaters seating up to 1,350; banquet and conference space for up to 1,200; a cafe seating up to 150; a store; and ancillary spaces for administration, education, exhibit preparation, and other related uses. The New Wing would include a main theater and an outdoor piazza. Parking would be accommodated through joint use of existing LACMA facilities and off-site facilities.
