Vintage Attraction Takes Final Bow
Movieland Wax Museum says, “Thanks for the Memories”
BUENA PARK, CA. - Opened in 1962 with a dedication by beloved Silent Film “Sweetheart” Mary Pickford, Movieland Wax Museum has enjoyed hosting millions of fans of both the large and small screen for more than 40 years. Showcasing more than 300 wax celebrities in a tribute to the World of Entertainment, the vintage attraction takes its final bow October 31, 2005.
Many of your favorite stars and authentic movie sets will be traveling north to join the West Coast’s premier wax museum in San Francisco. The Wax Museum at Fisherman’s Wharf not only presents a galaxy of dazzling stars, but also depicts all aspects of life, enveloping more than 2000 years of the history of mankind. Sport’s Heroes, Royalty, Master Artisans, US Presidents, great Religions of the world, Pulitzer and Nobel Prize Winners, as well as the splendor of King Tut’s Tomb are all showcased in custom sets, many enhanced with informative narrative. And of course, no wax museum is complete without its bone-chilling Chamber of Horrors!
At the same time, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museum, Movieland’s companion attraction located directly across the street, will also close its doors on their exhibits of the Lifestyles of the Bizarre and Beautiful. Opening at 12:34:56 pm, on 7-8-90, this “Odditorium” has astounded visitors for 15 years with a collection of unbelievable curiosities presented with unique “show biz” flair.
As Movieland and Ripley’s lower their final curtain, they also lower their admission price, allowing fans an opportunity to visit the museums right up to their final closing day for the sensational “Last Chance” price of $5.00.
