On Thursday night December 5th, 2019, for the private gala opening, The Hollywood Museum will go “Back To The Future”, to pay tribute and honor all 3 BTTF Movies, with special appearances by the Films cast members and other stars in attendance. This will be a historic exhibit as it will be the first ever ‘BACK TO THE FUTURE’ TRILOGY: THE EXHIBIT ever mounted in the United States.
The exhibit, which will consist of three popular sections – Hill Valley from 1955, Hill Valley from 1985, and Hill Valley from 1885, will pay tribute to the film franchise. Rob Klein, a top BTTF collector and Special Guest Curator for this exhibit said, “ In my opinion these three films are the most perfect in Cinematic history, in fact Universal Studios wanted a 4th installment – however both Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis agreed that the trilogy should not be revisited as they felt they had created and produced a trilogy that could not get any better.”
Dadigan, who is also the Chair of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Chair of the Hollywood Historic Trust, and Vice Chair of the California Film Commission said “We are beyond excited that fans of this movie franchise will be able to see original, costumes, props, along with the ever popular merchandise that fans of all ages loved to collect from all three films, and the Part 3 Hero DeLorean Time Machine as seen in the BTTF Part 3 – There are more than 350 artifacts in this special one of a kind exhibit, and many of these items have never been on public display before.”
Highlights from BACK TO THE FUTURE TRILOGY: THE EXHIBIT include Christopher Lloyd’s (Doc Brown) Robe from Parts 1 & 3, Michael J. Fox ( Marty McFly) Western Costume from Part 3, to Mary Steenburgen ( Clara) dress, & telescope from Part 3, the iconic Hero DeLorean Time machine Car in part 3, with more than 350 original screen matched artifacts , screen accurate replicas, iconic costumes, photos, posters and more are featured in this exhibit – The extensive exhibit will also feature much sought after collectibles from the time period that each film was released, along with several never before seen items.”
BACK TO THE FUTURE TRILOGY: EXHIBIT at THE HOLLYWOOD MUSEUM will be open to the public on December 6.
