We created a sleek museum style display for True Romance movie props. True Romance is a modern Bonnie and Clyde story written by Quentin Tarantino starring Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette. Throughout the production, Slater wears Elvis style sunglasses, which our client had acquired years after the production. Also present was a chair back from the movie set, which, at first glance, seemed like a challenging item to display!
We hit on the idea of using the production chair back as the backdrop for this display and the pieces fell into place. We used two wooden support posts, which mimic the look of the original chair style this backer would’ve been used with on set, and that became the foundation of the display. Sunglasses can also be a bit of a challenge to display nicely. For those, we used the same style of stained wooden post as the suppot for a partial mannequin head display, modified to better fit Christian Slater’s screen worn sunglasses. We chose the clean look of matte black laminate for the slab style base. The mix of black laminate and gloss stained wood create a very clean and sleek look. With the addition of a raised text metal plaque, this lovely museum style display is complete, and two slightly unusual pieces of movie history are now beautifully displayed together!
Whether you prefer a clean museum look or a themed display for context for your original movie props and collectibles, we can create displays to showcase your collection like no other!
