After honouring the movie business with Oscars for nearly 80 years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is planning to celebrate cinema in another way — on about 3.24 hectares in the heart of Hollywood.





The academy has commissioned an architect to design what is probably the world’s first museum dedicated to capturing the full scope of filmmaking.





The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will occupy two city blocks not far from the Kodak Theatre. No word yet if a picket sign from the Writers Guild of America strike of 2007, which began Monday, will have a place in the new museum.
