The exhibition looks at how the 80s changed the way we read about superheroes and its influence over modern day film adaptations). Original screen costumes will be once again on display during this year’s exhibition - ‘Superman: The Movie’ - Perhaps the most iconic movie costume of all time, Christopher Reeve’s Superman costume from the 1977 Richard Donner film ‘Superman: the Movie’ was designed by Yvonne Blake. - ‘Terminator 2: Judgement Day’ - This very rare complete Terminator outfit from James Cameron’s gamechanging action-blockbuster, ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ was worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The classic black leather motorcycle costume has become a pop culture icon. - ‘Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines’ - A complete costume designed by April Ferry and worn by the beautiful and deadly TX, played by Kristanna Loken.

This costume also features the prop TX arm, created by the legendary Stan Winston Studios.
