Located in the center of Hollywood at the corner of Vine Street and Fountain Avenue. The building was constructed in 1948 and opened August 18, 1948 as the Don Lee Mutual Broadcasting Building, containing radio and television broadcasting facilities. It was designed in a Late-Moderne style by architect Claud Beelman in association with Herman Spackler. Programs such as the Johnny Carson “Tonight” show and “Barney Miller” were produced here. It is the oldest surviving structure in Hollywood which was built with television in mind.
In 2001-2002 the building was rehabitated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to hold offices and their film archive. It opened in 2003 as the Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study, named after the famed silent movie actress Mary Pickford. It is now the Academy’s third facility in Hollywood.
The building also houses a movie theater, the 286-seat Linwood Dunn Theater. It has screenings for members of AMPAS, and also special screenings and events for members of the general public.
