The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science finally has an opening date for their soon-to-be-completed museum, as Tom Hanks announced at the Oscars that the Academy Museum will open its doors on December 14, 2020.
“We cannot wait to welcome the whole world to the Academy Museum. When our doors open on December 14, our thrilling combination of exhibitions, screenings, and public and educational programs will create unparalleled experiences for movie lovers everywhere,” said museum director Bill Kramer.
Hanks will serve as a co-chair the museum’s campaign alongside Annette Bening and Disney CEO Bob Iger. Located along the Miracle Mile in Los Angeles, the museum will feature four floors of exhibits with more details on the museum’s contents to come.
“The dream of this museum will finally become a reality — a gathering place for filmmakers and movie fans from around the world, where we can share the Oscars legacy and further fulfill the Academy‘s mission to connect the world through cinema,” said Academy CEO Dawn Hudson.
