Girard-Perregaux, the iconic luxury Swiss watch brand, is proud to announce its collaboration with the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, scheduled to open in 2016 in Los Angeles (We have already set reminders on our calendars). It will be the first U.S. not-for-profit museum dedicated exclusively to the history and ongoing development of motion pictures.

The museum will be designed by award-winning architects Renzo Piano and Zoltan Pali. The Museum’s galleries, theatres, screening rooms and education centres will draw from the Academy's extensive collections and archives, which include more than 140,000 films; ten million photographs; 42,000 original film posters; 10,000 production drawings, costumes, props and movie-making equipment; as well as behind-the-scenes personal accounts from artists and innovators working in the motion picture industry (Big, big numbers). Think behind-the-scene footage of Angelina Jolie, Liv Tyler and Liam Neeson? Well, you'd sure be getting them!
