Explore the world of film costumes with The Box and Plymouth Arts Cinema as part of our ‘Dress Code – Fashion Stories from The Box’ exhibition. This special event at Plymouth Arts Cinema will combine archival film with an iconic Hollywood classic and Q&A session.
From the early days of cinema, through the golden age of Hollywood, to the pared back looks of contemporary films, costume plays a vital and integral part in how we engage with films. Iconic images are burned into our collective memories of what cinema is - think of Marilyn Monroe's white dress billowing up, Audrey Hepburn's black gown and pearls, Cary Grant's perfect grey suit - film costumes are identifiable and aspirational.
Terah Walkup, Art Curator at The Box and Anna Navas, Director of Plymouth Arts Cinema, will introduce this special film night with a screening of archival fashion footage from The Box’s collections, an iconic Hollywood classic film and a post-film Q&A about vintage fashion, cinema and costume with special guest, Shekinah Vintage Shop.
