The Movieum of London, “a museum that celebrates the UK film industry”, officially opens tomorrow night.
The museum describes it’s mission and purpose as follows:
Finally – a museum that celebrates the UK film industry. The Movieum is a movie museum that goes behind-the-scenes of the British film industry, showcasing the great UK talent that has produced some of the world’s most famous movies, whilst at the same time displaying the wonderful creative process that they are part of. From the history of Pinewood and Elstree Studios, through to the individual departments that come together to create a film, including Special Effects, Animatronics, Make Up, Wardrobe and much more, there is something for everyone in this entertaining and educational experience. Featuring real sets, props and movie equipment, unseen behind-the-scenes footage, and a walk through the film making process. Created by Weird & Wonderful, The Movieum is part of a new breed of interactive based attractions and a new destination for all the family in Central London.
