The 86th Academy Awards are Sunday, March 2nd. This year's Oscar theme focuses on movie heroes and the filmmakers who create them. Picture Superman, Batman, Rambo, Karen Silkwood or Harvey Milk. The Oscars Celebrate Movie Heroes is a new exhibition in the Grand Lobby Gallery at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which does just that. Check out some of your favorite "incredibles" now thru March 5, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday - Friday, and from noon to 6 p.m. on the weekends. Bring your film friends. It's free!

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!
