“Cut! Costume and the Cinema,” features 43 period costumes from London costume house Cosprop Ltd., and, according to the museum, will give museum visitors a chance “to get close to the stories portrayed on screen and to appreciate the fine details that often can only fleetingly be glanced on the screen.”
