LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - "In the dim light of a gutted department store, through the dust of nearby construction, Kerry Brougher
sees a flickering movie future filled with "hundreds of different cinemas.
For tiny screens.
Theaters yet to be conceived.
problem now is to fit an art form that is already bursting through old walls into a new film museum that is being developed on the grounds of the old May Company department store on Wilshire Boulevard here.
Beginning on July 1, Mr. Brougher
- until recently the interim director of the Hirshhorn Museum
and Sculpture Garden in Washington - will take charge of a still aborning Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, as its first director."
