The long-delayed Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will have its grand opening in LA at the end of September, and one of its inaugural exhibitions honors Japanese animator and Academy-Award winner, Hayao Miyazaki.
The museum will welcome its first visitors on 30 September, although it has planned a series of virtual programs starting on 22 April around the Oscars. Conceived as digital prologues to the Academy Museum’s core exhibition, Stories of Cinema, these programs will share the varied voices of film artists, tell the stories of their inspirations and collaborations, and explore the art, technology, history and social impact of the movies.
