Redstone Donates $3 Mil to Museum of Moving Image

Gotham org to name theater after Viacom, CBS mogul

Gotham’s Museum of the Moving Image is getting a generous 25th birthday gift — Sumner Redstone, exec chairman of Viacom and CBS Corp., has made a $3 million donation.

In recognition of the gift, the museum will rename its state-of-the-art main theater the Sumner M. Redstone Theater in May.

“I am proud to support the work of this iconic cultural center which so skillfully melds my two lifelong loves — entertainment and learning,” Redstone said. “It is a great honor for me to add my name to all the distinguished patrons of the Museum as it continues to spread the art of film and media.”

In January Redstone donated $10 million to the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

The media magnate’s donation follows on the heels of the Museum of the Moving Image’s $67.5 million renovation and expansion designed by architect Thomas Leeser, completed in 2011. The expansion includes an education center, 68-seat screening room, changing exhibitions gallery and two amphitheaters, among other additions.
