If you’re a fan of Adam West’s version of Batman from the ’60s television show and 1966 film Batman, then you are going to want to pay attention. Especially if you live in or around Los Angeles.
In less than a month, on January 12, 2018, the Hollywood Museum will be opening an exhibit for Batman ’66, featuring props and memorabilia from show and movie. The exhibit will feature four main sections that fans can tour. They are Wayne Manor, the Batcave, a Gallery of Guest Super-villains, and the Collectibles from the film and show. Also included in the exhibit will be the Batmobile, Batcycle, the original costumes worn by Adam West, Burt Ward, and several villains costumes. Others need to be recreated due to deterioration.
A special VIP event will be taking place on January 10 to celebrate the opening, which will include appearances from Burt Ward (Robin), Lee Meriwether (Batman ’66 Catwoman), and Barbara Rush (Nora Clavicle). Ward had this to say about the opening of the exhibit:
“I am excited to see all of this. It will be like a homecoming to reunite with these items and to remember my friend and crime fighting partner, Adam West.”
Exhibit organizer Roger Neal teamed with various collectors to help put the everything together. Wally Wingert has been named the curator of the exhibit, who is not only a mega fan and collector of the show, but he also voiced the Riddler in Return of the Caped Crusaders and Batman vs Two-Face for the late Frank Gorshin.
The exhibit is scheduled to open on January 12, 2018, on the 52nd anniversary of the first broadcast of the show. Ticket prices are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors (62+) and students with an ID, and $5 for children under 5.
