LMU has announced that construction will soon commence on the Howard B. Fitzpatrick School of Film and Television (SFTV) Pavilion. An expansion of the existing Communication Arts building, the new 24,000-square-foot structure will enhance the school’s teaching and infrastructure capacity by adding a state-of-the-art screening theater, camera teaching stage, motion capture workspace, and an interdisciplinary media arts wing.
The Howard B. Fitzpatrick Pavilion will be “a sparkling new four-story building for learning, creating, watching, and working together,” said School of Film and Television Dean Peggy Rajski, adding, “the Pavilion will give us a great deal of badly-needed space for our talented community of students and faculty.”
Construction will take place primarily between the hours of 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM Monday through Friday, with occasional Saturday work. Work will run through the summer of 2021, with the Pavilion opening in time for the Fall 2021 semester.
