Hollywood comes to The Novium!
We are excited to announce that our new exhibition has opened. This exciting exhibition revisits one of the most popular periods of history, Ancient Rome, for an entirely new take on one of the world’s great civilisations.
Hollywood Rome has been curated by Pop Up Exhibitions and brings together their outstanding collection of original, screen used props, costumes and armour, from the modern era of epic cinema and television, including films such as Gladiator (2000), King Arthur (2004), Centurion (2009), The Eagle (2011) and Ben-Hur (2016).
It interprets them through the lives of the historical people they represent. The real lives of these people were often just as remarkable as the characters we see on film. The exhibition presents these historical figures in a way that will connect with modern audiences and fans of historical cinema.
