Donelle Dadigan, president and founder of the Hollywood Museum, announced today that the Back to the Future Trilogy: The Exhibit is coming this December. “The Hollywood Museum is thrilled that the co-creator of the Back to the Future franchise, Bob Gale, and world renown Back to the Future collectors, will work together in the first Back to the Future Trilogy: The Exhibit, opening to the public on Friday, Dec 6th 2019 – just before the 35th Anniversary of Back to the Future, and the 30th Anniversary of Back to the Future Part III! This exhibit will evoke memories for several generations of fans of the ever-popular Back to the Future movie franchise. In the Back to the Future Trilogy: The Exhibit, there is something for everyone. And, every fan of this franchise will be talking about this exhibit for years to come.”
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 three Back to the Future movies, with special appearances by the films’ cast members and other stars in attendance.
The exhibit will consist of three popular sections – Hill Valley from 1955, Hill Valley from 1985, and Hill Valley from 1885. 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 fourth 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 Hero DeLorean Time Machine as seen in Back to the Future Part III – 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 I & III, Michael J. Fox (“Marty McFly”) western costume from Part III, to Mary Steenburgen’s (“Clara Clayton”) dress, & telescope from Part III, the iconic Hero DeLorean time machine in the third film, with more than 350 original screen matched artifacts, screen accurate replicas, iconic costumes, photos, posters and more are featured in this exhibit.
Thousands of hours have gone into mounting this exhibit with a dedicated team of the Hollywood Museum staff and world-renown collectors, including Rob Klein, Bob Gale, Bill & Patrick Shea, Nate Truman, Stephen Clark, and Paul Nigh, who have come together to loan amazing items – including some never-before-seen artifacts that are now part of cinematic history.
