An official Path Through History Site! The Museum of the Moving Image is the only institution in the United States dedicated to the art, technology, and social impact of film, television, and digital media. Originally built by Famous Players-Lasky (known as Paramount after 1927) as their East Coast production facility in 1920, the studio was the site of hundreds of silent and early sound era film productions. Today, the museum houses the nation's largest collection of moving image artifacts, screens hundreds of films annually, and offers education programs. The museum's core exhibition, "Behind the Screen," immerses visitors in the creative process of making moving images through a unique combination of interactive experiences, rare and unusual artifacts, one-of-a-kind artworks, and demonstrations of professional crafts and equipment.
