    Hollywood to open film museum

    LOS ANGELES, June 17 (UPI) -- The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences appears to be closing in on a plan to build a museum devoted to the film industry and medium.

    The academy announced two years ago it intended to invest a share of its Oscar-show proceeds in a movie museum. The academy appears to be close to deciding on an 80,000-square-foot complex somewhere in Hollywood, The New York Times reported.

    Meanwhile a handful of institutions around the world are already chasing film history. And they have learned that it isn't easily captured because Hollywood relics have already become the focus of a booming Internet-driven marketplace.

    "Film productions like to sell, not to loan or donate, original items," said Rolf Giesen, curator for the German Cinematheque's Museum for Film and Television in Berlin, a 6-year-old institution run by the German government. "If eBay had been around, we wouldn't have had a chance."
