Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California

The Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study is one of three Los Angeles-area facilities of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, located at 1313 Vine Street in central Hollywood.

The Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study was named in honor of legendary silent film actress Mary Pickford in 2002. Pickford was one of the founding members of the Academy.

In addition to the 286-seat Linwood Dunn Theater where numerous public events are presented throughout the year, the building houses several Academy departments, including the Academy Film Archive, the Science and Technology Council, and the Grants and Nicholl Fellowship programs.

The building, originally dedicated on August 18, 1948, is the oldest surviving structure in Hollywood that was designed specifically with television in mind.[1]
