Icons of Darkness Brings Memorabilia from 'Aliens', 'Hellraiser' and More to LA This Fall

Updated: Oct 1


This fall, beheaded beasts, blood-gushing villains, 14-foot aliens, and the world’s most beloved blockbuster heroes will converge on Los Angeles for an immersive entertainment experience, as Icons of Darkness will premiere at The Montalbán in partnership with TV actor, writer, producer, and director Richard "Rich" Correll.


One of the most extensive, privately owned collections of its kind, Icons of Darkness will offer cinematic buffs, sci-fi fans, cosplay enthusiasts, and horror aficionados a walking tour of props, artifacts, and memorabilia from movies spanning almost 100 years of Hollywood history.


Hundreds of films will be represented, including Frankenstein, The Exorcist, Aliens, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Spiderman, Joker, and Harry Potter.


A sample of what patrons will be able to see include:

  • The original Xenomorph costume from Alien (1979), which features the designs of the (then-unknown and now influential) designer, H.R. Giger.

  • The full-sized Queen Alien from Aliens (1986), which solidified the sci-fi career of one of Hollywood’s most notable film directors, James Cameron.

  • Michael Keaton’s original Batsuit from the Tim Burton classic, Batman (1989), which led to the birth of the modern-day superhero film.

  • Original items from Terminator 2 Judgement Day (1991) and Stephen Spielberg’s dinosaur classic Jurassic Park (1993), which employed early CGI.

  • Work from famous horror authors, Stephen King’s It (1990), Clive Barker’s Hellraiser (1987), and William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist (1973).

  • Hugh Jackman’s battle arena Wolverine suit from X-Men (2000).

  • Work from the eight-time Academy Award-winning makeup artist Rick Baker, from films How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), Planet of the Apes (1997), and An American Werewolf in London (1982).

  • A stable of props, figures, and costumes including life casts of Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, Jr., and Boris Karloff representing Dracula (1931), The Wolfman (1941), and Frankenstein (1931).

In the past few months during the Coronavirus pandemic, The Montalbán has undertaken a massive pivot by transforming the lower level of its interior space from traditional theatre seating to an open floor plan. The new configuration allows for plenty of social distancing and is perfectly suited for Icon of Darkness' stunning exhibition.


Contingent on public health updates, the exhibit will be open five days a week, starting in late September 2020, with Coronavirus safety measures in place.


Reservations are required in order to limit the number of guests allowed in at one time. Tickets are on sale now. Please call the box office at 323-461-6999 or visit TheMontalban.com.
