The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced plans for its new museum at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the organization that presents the Oscars is thinking big.

Project highlights include a spaceship-like, 1,000-seat theater; a two-story, 12,000-square-foot "making of" movie experience;  a "demonstration stage" with room for 150 people to watch academy members conduct clinics and master classes; and more than 10,000 square feet devoted to the history of the movies. 

Assuming fundraising continues successfully, the six-story, 290,000-square-foot facility designed by Renzo Piano will open in 2017.
