Canadian heavyweights buy movie museum lobby

  • Print

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- The upcoming Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will include a lobby and gallery space named after business titans Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences says the Canadian couple donated $5 million towards design and construction.

In appreciation, the museum's mezzanine lobby and gallery space will be dubbed the Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman Mezzanine Gallery.

The museum will be located next to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and is slated to open in early 2017.

It is expected to contain nearly 28,000 square metres of galleries, exhibition spaces, theatres, screening rooms and special event spaces.

Schwartz is CEO of Onex Corporation and Reisman is chief executive of Indigo Books & Music Inc.

The academy launched the museum's capital campaign in 2012. The campaign is co-chaired by actors Annette Bening and Tom Hanks.
