Martin Scorsese has directed nearly 60 films over his 50-plus-year career. With the opening of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” in December, the Star Wars franchise shows no signs of slowing, and DreamWorks continues to make hugely popular animated films for audiences of all ages. Museumgoers can learn about these and other silver-screen powerhouses at these film and cinema exhibits.
Downton Abbey: The Exhibition
Whether their favorite characters lived upstairs or downstairs in Crawley manor, “Downton Abbey: The Exhibition” allows visitors to get a firsthand look into the PBS Masterpiece smash hit, which wrapped up its final season in 2016.
The exhibition, which opened in Singapore last summer, made its North American debut in November in New York City. NBCUniversal International Studios extended the run through April 2 due to popular demand. Organizers expect it will travel, but locations have not yet been announced.
The period costumes are front and center in the exhibits. Visitors will also see sets, such as the dining room, the kitchen and Lady Mary Crawley’s boudoir, and learn about post-Edwardian English culture and social history.
