Museum of the Moving Image


Museum of the Moving Image advances the public understanding and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media. It does so by collecting, preserving, and providing access to moving-image related artifacts, screening significant films and other moving-image works, presenting exhibitions of artifacts, artworks, and interactive experiences, and offering educational and interpretive programs to students, teachers, and the general public.


The recent expansion featuring a stunning, modern, and versatile building was done by German Architect THOMAS LEESER.


The Museum is now able to present more screenings and a wider range of programming in a brand new 267-seat theater and 68-seat screening room. The core exhibition, Behind the Screen, has received a complete technological and artistic overhaul. A major new gallery has been created for changing exhibitions, and new spaces have been added for the presentation of video art.
