The exhibit will trace the history of filmmaking in Los Angeles back to its roots at the beginning of the 20th century, illustrating how and why this city became the world capital of cinema that it still is today. The exhibition will devote emphasis to the predominantly Jewish founders of the early Hollywood studio system, delving into how their personal narratives shaped the distinct characteristics of the movies their respective studios produced and foregrounding the ways in which the birth of the American film industry and, therefore the depiction of the American dream projected to audiences across the country and around the world is truly an immigrant story.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
