The long-delayed Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will open its doors in LA next April with an exhibition honoring Japanese animator and Academy-award winner Hayao Miyazaki.
Proving that it's been worth the wait, the museum will welcome its first visitors on April 30 with a temporary exhibition celebrating the 60-year career of Studio Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki. It's the first major retrospective of Suzuki's work presented in North America and will showcase the legendary animator's impact on cinema with more than 300 objects on display, some of which have never been seen before outside of Japan. Immersive exhibitions will explore much-loved films including My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke and the Academy Award-winning Spirited Away.
