New Tivoli Theatre Exhibit Opening at Downers Grove Museum
Going to watch a movie at the Tivoli Theatre has been a popular night out in Downers Grove for over 80 years, and a new museum exhibit will chart how the experience has transformed from silent, black and white movies to today's 3D blockbusters.
The Movie Magic: Celebrating 86 Years of the Tivoli Theatre exhibition will open at the Downers Grove Museum on July 11. The exhibit will feature classic movie posters, artifacts from throughout the theatre's history rarely available for the public to view and interactive activities that allow visitors to contribute to the exhibit.
The exhibition launches with an opening event on July 11 from 4-6pm, and will remain open until December 20. The exhibition, which is free to visit, will be open to view during Museum's Public Tour Hours - 1-6pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 10am-4pm on Saturdays.
Alongside the exhibition, a series of Tivoli themed programs will also give movie fans a chance to discover even more about the theatre's past. Ashlee Craig, Museum Supervisor, said "as part of the exhibition fans of the Tivoli will also have a chance to attend an exclusive Meet & Greet event with the Tivoli owners, or take a behind the scenes tour of the theatre. We'll also be holding two classic movie screenings at the museum - the original 1933 version of King Kong and the musical Top Hat."
