As the final Skywalker Saga episode arrives in the form of The Rise of Skywalker, so a pop-up museum dedicated to the memory of Carrie Fisher lands at the legendary Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.
Our very own Paul McQue was in LA to cover the premiere for Fantha, and here are some of his own images of the display.
Fans of the late Carrie Fisher will get extra value when her last major movie, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” opens at the Chinese Theatres Thursday.
In the lobby of the upstairs multiplex in the Hollywood & Highland complex, her brother Todd Fisher will be displaying rare items from his collection of Carrie’s “Star Wars” memorabilia and other, moving stuff related to the woman who was the sci fi phenomenon’s beloved Leia Organa.
The Carrie Fisher Pop Up Museum should be on display for a week, but her brother has several special treats planned for Thursday, including screening some rare home movies of Carrie being hilariously Carrie and a tour of their mother Debbie Reynolds’ – who died the day following her daughter’s passing almost three years ago – impressive archive of Hollywood memorabilia.
Among the items that will be on display:
Several directors chairs Carrie sat in on the sets of different “Star Wars” episodes, including a unique one from England, with accompanying vintage photos of her, George Lucas and other castmembers.
All of her bound scripts for the original trilogy of films, signed by Lucas.
A white Leia outfit, and the costume Carrie wore for her first performance in Vegas.
Her Star Wars weapons, including a lightsaber.
Rare posters, among them one for the soon renamed “Revenge of the Jedi.”
Artwork of Carrie (yes, there’s a metal bikini painting).
