Photos and posters featuring timeless heroes from 80 films, spanning nine decades, are now on display. Heroes run the gamut from real-life ones (“Milk,” “Silkwood”), to superheroes (“Superman,” “The Dark Knight”), to animated ones (“Shrek,” “The Incredibles”), to action stars (“Rambo,” “Gladiator”), thru literary ones (“The Grapes of Wrath,” “To Kill a Mockingbird”). Montages of film excerpts from classic and contemporary movies highlight the wide-range of big screen heroes who have touched our lives.

Have a "reel" good time!
