The Hollywood Premiere Gala will take place in the glamorously transformed museum, and will start with guests posing on a step-in-repeat entrance in front of paparazzi cameras. Inside, guests will be delighted over the dramatic decorations, extravagant dinner fare and libations, and ear-pleasing strands of Sidecar Social Club.
If you are unable to join us at the premiere gala, the exhibition will be on display at the museum from November 15, 2014 to September 6, 2015.

These films and television shows are just a sampling of the productions showcased in the exhibition: Firestarter, Dirty Dancing, The Last of the Mohicans, Weekend at Bernie’s, Dawson’s Creek, and Tammy.
