SACRAMENTO, CA.- The California Museum, the institution that hosted Sacramento’s highly popular Lincoln exhibition, is switching out the historical exhibition and making way for something fantastically orbital. On October 3rd, the general public will be able to visit Out of this World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television, an exhibition highlighting Hollywood’s most memorable science fiction and fantasy costumes.

Costumes and props from Star Wars, The Terminator, Star Trek, the Indiana Jones series - and many more science fiction, action, and fantasy movies and television shows from the last 70 years – illustrate how costume design incorporates color, style, materials, traditions and cultural cues to engage performers and audience members alike.

For example, Darth Vader’s cape, helmet and light saber from Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back will be on display. The Sith Lord’s ominous look, created by John Mallo was designed to trigger not only historical associations, but emotional ones as well. The costume was assembled from four 20th Century Fox costume genres, combining a World War II German helmet, a monk’s cloak, a motorcyclist’s leather under-suit, and a medieval breastplate.

Among the 50 costumes and props exhibited are:

• Leather jacket worn by Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade; accompanied by the Holy Grail, as well as Indy’s whip and the headpiece from the Staff of Ra from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

• Leather jacket worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator.

• Hat worn by the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz.

• Starfleet uniform worn by Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

• Tunic and sash worn by Captain Kirk in Star Trek.

• Costume worn by George Clooney as Batman in Batman & Robin.

• Luke Skywalker’s light saber from Star Wars and X-wing pilot flight suit used in The Empire Strikes Back.

• Riddler costume worn by Jim Carrey in Batman Forever.

• Jumpsuit, proton pack, and utility belt worn by Dan Ackroyd in Ghostbusters II,

• Costume worn by Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod in The Highlander.

• Klingon warrior uniform used in numerous Star Trek films and television episodes.

• Mask, tunic, and gloves worn by the character Gorn, who fought Captain Kirk on Star Trek
