If you’ve ever fancied owning your own part of movie history, now is your chance. On Tuesday September 26, the BFI Imax in London will host one of the world’s biggest movie memorabilia auctions. When we say movie memorabilia we don’t mean a cardboard cutout of Chewbacca or the odd vintage movie poster, we mean the chance to own the original props, costumes and puppets featured in some of the world’s most popular movies.
Up for sale are a number of extremely rare and sought after items, including the likes of James Bond’s Royal Navy cap from The Spy Who Loved Me (valued at between $6,780 and $9,500), Jack Nicholson’s suit from when he played The Joker in the 1989 version of Batman ($27,000 and $40,500) and even the bullwhip used by Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusaide ($67,800 and $95,000).
Also up for auction are some more novelty items including Marty McFly’s light-up Nike high-tops from Back To The Future II ($34,000 to $47,500), the iconic boiler suit worn by Bill Murray in Ghostbusters ($8,150 to $10,900) and even the (slightly unflattering) suit worn by Will Ferrel in Elf ($10,900 to $13,500).
The auction will take place in the BFI Imax in London Bridge, however if you’re unable to make it to the event you can still participate by submitting phone, online or absentee bids.
