After having tourist walk around Los Angeles without many visuals of the arts that began in Hollywood, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided to build one by 2019. Now, more than ever, people have been more invested in the modern cinematic world and how it all began. Based on the information from VOA News, it appears the making of such museum is already put to action.

They say the museum is set to be built on a historic Los Angeles Department store that was built in 1939. The structure of the building is going to include a glass dome that would allow people to view the Hollywood Hills. It will also include a 1,000-seat theater under it. Making this museum will be 27,000-square-meter and cost about $388 million.

Included in the museum will have the Academy’s collection of 80,000 screenplays and 12 million photographs. Many famous films and Oscar winners will showcase collections as well. A few that will be included would be “Casablanca”, “The Ten Commandments”, and “Psycho” by Alfred Hitchcock. Along with film collections, there will be Oscar winners who will donate statuettes to make the public have a film experience. Screenplays and scripts will also be included, much like a page of the “To Kill A Mockingbird” film with annotations by Gregory Peck himself.

Mayor Eric Garcetti believes it will be a great addition to Los Angeles because it will allow people to see the different parts of the film industry all at one, past and present. After 90 years of proposing to build a museum for the film industry, the time has come for everyone to see what really happens behind the scenes and what comes after.

Thanksgiving can move aside because people will begin to line up at the nearest Starbucks to get a glimpse of the official seasonal cup. And this year, the cups come with a lot of new details and ideas.

Last year, Starbucks had released 13 different red, seasonal Starbucks cups that were designed by customers and chosen to be featured as cups. Starbucks had realized their customers enjoy drawing on the cups and making it their own unique cup. Which is one of the reasons that Starbucks has decided to make this year’s cup full of white space and only a bit of red to outline the cup. It allows the customer to color in the cup any way they want and be creative with what they decide to do with the cup.

Beside the new coloring cup idea, there are a couple of figures on the cup that also add another layer of interest because Starbucks wanted to also be involved with issues in society and the world. Which is why Starbucks added to their seasonal cup features a female couple about to kiss and an elderly woman holding hands with a man that is wearing a Muslim traditional type of hat.

An article written by CNBC got a response from a Starbucks spokesperson about the seasonal cups saying, “Each year during the holidays, we aim to bring our customers an experience that inspires the spirit of the season and we will continue to embrace and welcome customers from all backgrounds and religions in our stores around the world.”

In a Starbucks commercial, there is also animations and visuals from the cup that show these social issues and it works to show the world that there needs to be issues discussed. Yet the video allows the message to be received “a little softer and potentially less polarizing.”

Seasonal drinks are already being sold to the public and creating the Christmas feel around the world. Visit your nearest Starbucks and get a taste of Christmas early this year with the new seasonal cup and drink flavors. ‘Tis the season and Starbucks drinks.
