The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Launches Exhibition of Favorite Film Costumes
The Academy has brought some of the most iconic movie looks together under one roof
If you’ve ever wondered what happened to Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones hat from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Henry Cavill’s Superman cape from Man of Steel or Judy Garland’s ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, the answer is that they’re all actually in the same place.
These iconic pieces – along with 150 other costumes – will be on display at the Hollywood Costume exhibition presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in the historic Wilshire May Company building, beginning Oct. 2.
“This really reflects 100 years of the costume designers’ contribution to the movies,” legendary costumer Deborah Landis, who curated the exhibit, told PEOPLE. “It starts with Charlie Chaplin and The Tramp, in 1914, and ends with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in 2014.”
The exhibition also includes memorable costumes from Dallas Buyers Club, The Hunger Games, Mary Poppins and Titanic, among many others.
“You enter the room and you just see a million stars in roles that you remember,” said Landis. “It’s like a cocktail party that you always wanted to go to.”
