H’w’d museum gets ‘preview’

The new owners of the Max Factor Museum, Colony Bancorp/Hollywood Heritage, are planning to open a “preview museum” in the building in May, to demonstrate what the facility will look like when fully operational.

Calling it the Museum of Hollywood History, the exhibit will feature original costumes, set pieces, props, special-effects exhibits and photographs from such films as “The Ten Commandments,””The Wizard of Oz,””Ghostbusters,””Ben Hur, “”Blade Runner,””Singin’ in the Rain” and “Gone With the Wind.”

More than 500 items will be put on display, but they may be viewed by appointment only.

“This is to formalize the design plans for the overall project,” said Robert W. Nudelman, museum director. “It’s also an opportunity to give public officials , people from the industry and community members a chance to view what we’re doing and get their input.”

The design team for the museum includes architect Bernard Judge and designer Joe Musil. The entire facility, including a restaurant and theater, is scheduled to open by early 1994.
