Back To The Batcave

If you thought you missed the Batman '66 Retrospective at the Hollywood Museum, don't fret citizens...the exhibit is being revamped and extended.  Holy Batmania.

Batman '66 Retrospective is the first ever exhibition dedicated to the TV series Batman ’66 and was only supposed to last a few months, but due to popularity it was extended, and now it is being extended again...through November...revamped and remodeled!!!

Lee Meriwether, Catwoman
We first told you about Batman '66 the Exhibit way back in January.  It is Batmania heaven with both authentic memorabilia and INCREDIBLE replica costumes and props.  We were lucky enough to go to the opening and got to meet Burt Ward and Lee Meriwether.  Here is a short video we did with Lee talking about playing Catwoman with her actual costume right behind her. (Sorry audio is so poor.)

According to Hollywood Museum owner Donelle Dadigan "the organizers are switching up the exhibit, with some items coming out and new items coming in."

"Adam West and Burt Ward’s original costumes, replica villain costumes, and the Batmobile and Batcycle are among the items that will remain." continued Dadigan.

New items include a life-size Victor Buono King Tut sculpture with replica costume that was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con, plus contributions from Barris Kustoms — including the original Batmobile blueprint and other collectibles.

Burt Ward, Robin himself, is kicking off the revamped exhibit at the museum scheduled for Sept. 8, with a special panel.

The moderator will be exhibit organizer Roger Neal, Ward’s longtime publicist, and will include collectors Pat Evans, Rob Klein, Tom Woodruff, Alex Zsolt and Kelly Delcambre.

Also appearing will be Jared Barris of Barris Kustoms and Donna Loren who will also be signing books after the panel.

The panel starts at 1:00 p.m. and goes until 2:30, with “lots of surprises” promised by organizers. Special $40 VIP tickets are required and include admission to the museum, the panel with refreshments, a commemorative t-shirt and 10 percent off a dessert at Mel’s Diner next door.

This is seriously one of the best exhibits we have ever seen dedicated to one of the best shows ever made.  Go check it out it.  You will never regret it if you do, but you might regret it if you don't...and that is why we ❤️it.
