Motion pictures and television share a rich technological and artistic history in which scientists, inventors, artists and entrepreneurs have all played significant roles. The American Museum of the Moving Image is dedicated to educating the public about the art, history, technique and technology of film, television, video and digital media, offering visitors of all ages an opportunity to understand this history and its impact on our lives.

Featuring almost 1,000 historical artifacts, thirteen computer-based interactive experiences, film and video presentations, and demonstrations of professional equipment, the Museum's exhibition Behind the Screen takes visitors through the process of producing, marketing, and exhibiting movie images.

Focusing on the jobs of many individuals whose collaborative effort results in a complete moving image product, Behind the Screen is a sophisticated look at the history and contemporary practice of film and television. The 14,000 square-foot exhibition was designed by Ali Hocek of AC Hocek Architects.

The Museum presents more than 300 programs annually, from silent films and Hollywood classics to digital art, television documentaries, and animation. All works are screened in their original formats. The 200-seat Riklis Theater is one of the most sophisticated and versatile screening facilities in the country. In conjunction with screening series, the Pinewood Dialogues offer an ongoing series of personal appearances by moving industry professionals. Approximately fifty guests participate each year in discussions and lectures.
