This is not the scheme within the "football helmet" but one that respects the entire historic building and maintains the Fairfax and Wilshire historic facades. The entire envelope of the building is maintained and utilized for the museum.
The museum contains theaters as we've come to know them where films from every era and technology can be presented as they were meant to be. It also has a new kind of space or venue where you are enveloped in film, where there is no separation between wall, screen or audience.
The culture of film is not held within a theater, it’s in the arcades of the movieplex before a show, it’s in the coffee houses nearby where movies are discussed. The museum will act as a hub for the film community, establishing a locus where professionals and movie fans can interact and explore.
