Everybody loves movies. But how often do you really get to be up close to some of the greatest films in history? The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts kicks off its latest exclusive with the grand opening of “Hollywood Costume,” organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum of London. You can check out some of the most iconic costumes from the last century of cinema — the “Wizard of Oz,” “Funny Girl,” pictured, “Titanic,” “Harry Potter” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” among them. This stuff has never been displayed publicly beyond the walls of the big studio archives. The museum has the only exhibition on the East Coast. The exhibit opens Saturday, Nov. 9, at 10 a.m., and runs through Feb. 17. Tickets range from $10-$20. vmfa.state.va.us.
