The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is hosting a dinner tonight to give its biggest donors — David Geffen being the most recent with his $25M gift — to say thanks and give an update on the project and its $300M capital campaign. The dinner will include a booklet with photos that provide details about the nearly 300,000-square-foot Academy Museum of Motion Pictures that is slated to open in early 2017 on the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax. Among the tidbits about the Renzo Piano- and Zoltan Pali-designed museum (the model below emerged on the Acad’s Twitter page today, with a spokesman saying there’s more photos coming this evening): six levels of exhibition and programming spaces; interactive family-friendly moviemaking labs; a 15,000-square-foot landscaped public piazza for visitors and connect the museum with the LA County Museum of Art campus; and special event spaces for groups of up to 1,000 people and a rooftop terrace with views of the LA basin and Hollywood Hills.
