Not long ago in a galaxy you're all very familiar with, the Academy tweeted out an image of what its new museum is going to look like. We think it looks like the Death Star.
You be the judge.
Despite its resemblance to a weapon that blows up planets, the museum actually looks very cool and we can't wait to visit.
More from the Academy site:
Motion pictures are our most populist form of visual art and they captivate us in ways no other art form can. For every generation they are the cultural, social and political diary. They inspire and challenge us to see each other and the world in different and meaningful ways—often crossing ethnic, political, geographic and socioeconomic lines to do so. And yet, in Los Angeles–the moviemaking capital of the world–there is no museum dedicated to preserving, presenting, and celebrating this most influential art form... until now.
The Academy Museum will contain over 290,000 square feet of state-of-the-art galleries, exhibition spaces, movie theaters, educational areas, and special event spaces. The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will be the world's premier museum devoted to exploring and curating the history and future of the moving image.
