CJ's Miky Lee appointed vice chair of U.S. film museum
Miky Lee, vice chairman of CJ CGV, has been elected vice chair of the board of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
According to Deadline on Wednesday, the board elected Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos as chairman and Lee as vice chair of the museum, which is scheduled to open in April 2021.
Established by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the museum, currently under construction in Los Angles, is the first large-scale museum in the United States dedicated to film. It will provide knowledge and interactive experiences related to the art, science, craft, business and history of Hollywood and the global film industry.
Lee was appointed as a trustee last November. As the governing body of the museum, the board of trustees aims to oversee the organization's strategic vision and financial health and ensure that the institution strives to fulfill its mission to become the world's best motion picture museum.
Tom Hanks is also a member of the board.
