View artifacts from several productions including Firestarter, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill and Tammy. See a cape and the ear from Blue Velvet, an Iron Man 3 mask, and the jet ski beloved by Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) in Eastbound & Down.

Test your knowledge of past television programs and major motion pictures. Try your hand at the foley arts by adding sound to movie clips. Learn about Dino DeLaurentiis’ efforts to create the largest sound stage lot east of California and find out how North Carolina’s film incentives program changed the industry in the Cape Fear region.
