“A reporter's lot is not easy, making exciting stories out of plain, average, ordinary people like Robin and me.” —Adam West as Batman
Last weekend the line stretched out the door to see the Hollywood Museum's Batman ’66 Retrospective. The first museum exhibit to explore the TV show that defined Batman for generations is a must-see. It features never-before-seen props, costumes and rare collectibles, such as the original Dr. Cassandra costume worn by guest villainess Ida Lupino — from 1968 episode “The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra.”
The Hollywood Museum, housed in the old Max Factor building, has much to offer for those who love Hollywood history, with more than 10,000 props, set pieces and costumes. We love the specially re-created color tones to the rooms Max Factor used with his clients, with a nice cool green for the redheads.
Batman '66 is only around for a limited time, with the exhibit set to run through March 17, so pack your shark repellent, hop in your Batmobile and drive on over to the Hollywood Museum because, as Batman said, “Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.”
