As part of the City of Beverly Hills Centennial Celebration, the Academy presents tours of the Margaret Herrick Library and a photo exhibition.
A Closer Look: Exploring the Academy's Fairbanks Center for Motion Picture Study
Saturday, July 12
On July 12, for the first time since the opening of the Academy's Fairbanks Center for Motion Picture Study in 1991, the public will be invited to take a journey through film history and get a behind-the-scenes look at this world-renowned research facility. Since its earliest days, the Academy has maintained a reference library dedicated to documenting the history and development of the motion picture as an art form and as an industry. In the late 1980s, the Academy proposed to re-purpose the abandoned City of Beverly Hills Water Treatment Plant No. 1 – a 40,000 square-foot building at the corner of La Cienega and Olympic boulevards – as a home for its ever-expanding research collections.
