ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A New York museum is honoring actor Michael Keaton for his contributions to the art of film.

The George Eastman Museum in Rochester will present the “Beetlejuice,” ”Birdman” and “Mr. Mom” actor with an award Thursday evening.

The museum says Keaton is being recognized for his versatility over more than 40 years in television and film. The ceremony will feature a video compilation of his work.

The George Eastman Award was established in 1955, and is named for the photography innovator who founded Rochester-based Eastman Kodak.

Previous winners include Charlie Chaplin, Martin Scorsese, Meryl Streep and Michael Douglas.

The George Eastman Museum is the world’s oldest photography museum and one of the oldest film archives.
