Prop Store Exhibition at BFI IMAX 2016

To have the chance to see some of your favourite memorabilia and props from some of your most beloved films, really is something quite special and unique. It’s a very rare opportunity so when you have the chance to see these random items and be up close and personal close to any of these objects, take it! I was lucky enough to have an exhibition in London so I went down to the BFI IMAX in Waterloo, London as Prop Store were holding a special event before their live auction, which took place on September 27.

What I saw made me have a huge geekgasm, it was very exciting and the perfect place for me! There were signed scripts and books, props from Die Hard, The Dark Knight, Terminator 2, Star Trek, The Martian, 24, Gladiator and too many more to name. The auction has gone live and people are currently bidding thousands on items such as the Bat Pod, costumes from Star Trek, original storyboards from Star Wars, FBI badges from The X Files, clapperboards from countless films and a signed copy of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.

So if you’ve got a bottomless pit of cash, chances are you’ll be bidding on these items already! I know what I’d get first, the Batpod! Take a look and see what I saw the other day. What would you bid on?

Keep. It. Reel.
