Building 222 at 20th Century-Fox will be named after longtime Fox music executive Lionel Newman at a dedication ceremony on Nov. 21 at the Pico lot.
Composer John Williams, who worked with Newman during the 1960s and 1970s — first on such TV series as “Lost in Space,” later on the early “Star Wars” films — will speak at the ceremony. Other members of the Newman family, including singer-songwriter Randy Newman (Lionel’s nephew) and TV composer Joey Newman (his grandson), are expected to attend.
The building has housed the studio’s music-department administrative offices for many years, including Lionel’s own office and one for Williams when he was regularly composing for the studio (“The Poseidon Adventure,” “Star Wars”).
Newman worked at Fox for more than 40 years, beginning as a rehearsal pianist in 1943 when his older brother Alfred was the studio’s general music director. He went on to compose, conduct or supervise »
