It’s Showtime at the Museum of Surrey
New feature exhibit shines spotlight on local filming scene.
Surrey, BC – Museum of Surrey has partnered with premier global media and entertainment company Warner Bro. Discovery and the City of Surrey’s Filming Department in its latest feature exhibition ‘Surrey on Screen'.
Now in the Feature Gallery until April 17, 2023, Surrey on Screen explores the legacy of film production in Surrey. This is a fun and interesting exhibit where you can learn about filming in Surrey from three perspectives – people, profits (economic contribution), and places.
View film props, including over two dozen objects on loan from Warner Bros. Discovery, plus artifacts from Surrey Heritage Collection such as the Clova Cinema’s movie projector. This interactive exhibit also provides visitors with the opportunity to walk the red carpet and transport themselves to various filming sets from Surrey via green screen, strike a pose with famous movie star cutouts, vote for one’s favourite films made in Surrey, and much more.
“With hundreds of film days each year, thousands of creators, actors, and technicians, filming in Surrey is an economic driver in British Columbia’s creative industry,” says Lynn Saffery, museum manager. “This exhibit is a great way to learn about filming and share your experiences with others.”
Admission is free. For more information visit surrey.ca/museum.
