On June 24th, 2015, the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to approve the building of an Academy Museum of Motion Pictures on the site of Wilshire Blvd. and Fairfax Ave.
Groundbreaking is set for the fall of 2015. The design of the museum, by architect Renzo Piano, features 6 floors of exhibition spaces, special event spaces, a cafe, a store, and a movie theater with terrace. The project is expected to cost $300 million.

Update: The Academy Museum is set to open in late 2019. This week, the Museum's director announced the George Lucas Family Foundation has made a donation that will allow children 17 and under to visit the Museum for free - forever. The donation was made in honor of Sid Ganis, who is vice-president of the Academy's Board of Governors. Ganis said, “I could not be more honored and humbled by George’s gift to young movie lovers around the world. Education has always been a primary goal of George’s storytelling. Now through his incredible generosity young people from everywhere can experience and learn about the art and the techniques of filmmaking.”
