About

Wes Anderson… has a very special kind of talent: He knows how to convey the simple joys and interactions between people so well and with such richness. This kind of sensibility is rare in movies. ~ Martin Scorsese

The Rushmore Academy was founded in 2001 as a fan site for Wes Anderson’s sophomore film Rushmore.

With the release of The Royal Tenenbaums in 2001, we began the tradition of enshrining each Wes Anderson film in our hallowed halls. In 2007, we shifted the focus of our content and energies to a blog format.

  1. Hey there!
    Great website!! We are showing one of our favorite films this Sat June 7th and thought you would be interested…if you (or your readers) are in LA/SoCal.
    See Rushmore on the largest outdoor screen west of the Mississippi – over 3 stories tall plus food trucks and live music from Thieves. We’re on the big lawn outside of The Autry in Griffith Park with free parking across the street at the LA Zoo. Hope you can join us!
    Cheers,

  2. One of the most brilliant men ever to grace us with his prescence. No one could ever truly match equal to this talented human being who clearly understands and appreciates the momentary encounters of life as they are. All my love to such a being similar to my own.
