Hollywood Comes to South Carolina:

A Century of Filmmaking in the Palmetto State

 

January 12 - October 29, 2008 NOW CLOSED

The State Museum has reached back in time to gather scores of artifacts, photographs, posters and other memorabilia from movies great and small to produce the new blockbuster exhibit Hollywood Comes to South Carolina: A Century of Filmmaking in the Palmetto State.

The exhibit traces the history of films large and small made in South Carolina over the entirety of the 20th century, and includes early documentaries and educational films in addition to major motion pictures.

Guests will see photographs, posters, movie clips, filmmaking equipment, costumes, props, and other artifacts that they may have seen on the big screen or perhaps even seen in person in their towns or helped build.  

Included are such items as a “fat suit” worn by Eddie Murphy in “The Nutty Professor 2;” the gallows used in Mel Gibson’s Revolutionary War epic “The Patriot;” a pair of pants worn by Kevin Bacon in “Death Sentence,” the recent release filmed in Columbia; a dress worn by Julia Roberts in “Something to Talk About” and the “interview” couch used in “The Big Chill.”

$3 in addition to regular admission for ages three and up.
