Discussing the Exhibits and Programs the Academy Will Unveil at the AMPAS Museum
Our previous post was about how George Lucas has generously made a donation to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) museum so that kids age 17 and under will be able to enter for free.
In this follow-up from Turner Classic Movies, Kerry Brougher, Director of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures , discusses with host Ben Mankiewicz the different types of exhibits and programs that will exist at the museum and it sounds both stunningly beautiful and incredibly fascinating.
The lobby will have a ‘Wizard of Oz’ theme in which guests will transition from a sepia-hued “Kansas” to the colorfully vibrant “land of Oz.” One area will focus on early film inventors and innovators while another will focus on the movie studio system, plus tons more.
