Actor Rich Correll has opened Icons of Darkness, a new Hollywood museum filled with $15 million worth of props and costumes from beloved science fiction, fantasy, and horror franchises.
The collection, which represents “over 100 years of Hollywood film history curated and collected over the last 60 years,” includes props from Jurassic Park, a Darth Vader mask, and lots more costumes and memorabilia. The collection is currently on display at Hollywood & Highland, and is expected to move into a display upstairs called “Icons of Darkness/The Science Fiction Fantasy and Horror Hall of Fame.”
Correll says of the collection:
[T]he one continuing genre in the history of the movies that has never failed to make money or never gone out of style has been horror, sci-fi and fantasy…. And yet, the city has never really paid tribute to those movies, even though those have been the box-office champs in years where other movies won Best Picture.
