“`The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures has unveiled its schedule of inaugural in-person screenings and public programs, which will begin on September 30th. The Academy Museum is the largest repository in the United States devoted to the beauty behind the art and science of moviemaking.

“`During the first three months, the museum will offer the public a dynamic and diverse slate of over 115 film screenings, discussions and programs for film lovers of all ages, starting with two special presentations of The Wizard of Oz featuring live musical accompaniment by the American Youth Symphony conducted by Oscar-nominated composer David Newman.

“`Other highlights of the museum’s initial in-person programming include the launch of several ongoing series, including Stories of Cinema, Legacy discussions (the first with Bruce and Laura Dern), Oscar Sunday, Family Matinees, and In Conversation with behind-the-scenes auteurs of cinema. Special programs include a retrospective of the career of Anna May Wong, a screening of Malcolm X in 70mm, and Oscar Frights leading up to Halloween.

“`Educational programs will be ongoing. They will take place throughout in exhibition galleries, theaters and at the Shirley Temple Education Studio. Accommodative tours for hard of hearing and deaf communities, and low vision and blind communities will be offered monthly.

“`Virtual programs will continue leading up to the museum’s opening, including a conversation with Oscar-winning writer-director Spike Lee and writer-director-producer Shaka King.

“`Whew! Let me catch my breath…
