About Museum of the Moving Image
Founded in 1981, Museum of the Moving Image is the only institution in the United States that deals comprehensively with the art, technology, and social impact of film, television, and digital media. Housed in a building owned by the City of New York, which is the site of the former Astoria Studio, originally constructed as Paramount’s East Coast production facility in 1920, the Museum boasts the nation’s largest collection of moving image artifacts and screens hundreds of films annually. Its exhibitions—including the core exhibition, Behind the Screen—are noted for their integration of material objects, computer-based interactive experiences, and audiovisual presentations. A major expansion and renovation of the Museum’s facility is currently underway. Designed by architect Thomas Leeser, the project will double the size of the Museum and includes a new 264-seat theater, a 68-seat screening room, new galleries for the exhibition of digital art, and a multi-classroom education center. The expanded Museum will open to the public on January 15, 2011. For more information, visit movingimage.us
