This past weekend marked one of the biggest box office weekends in 2023.
CityWalk Box Office
Between Oppenheimer (2023), starring Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., and Emily Blunt, and Barbie (2023) with Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, theaters were packed for the first time in forever.
Universal Studios CityWalk (both in Orlando and Hollywood) has a movie theater where Resort Guests can stop in to catch a movie while on vacation or just for a night out.
Costumes on Display
At Universal Cinema at Universal Studios Hollywood, costumes are currently on display in the lobby from Oppenheimer (2023). The film, directed by Christopher Nolan, tells the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, known as the “father of the atomic bomb.” Display cases in the movie theater contain costumes worn by Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., and Florence Pugh.
The original costumes designed by Ellen Mirojnick were provided to the theater by the NBCUniversal Archives and Collections. The theater has a total of four costumes on display in the lobby. And because they are placed in the lobby, a movie ticket is not required. So if you have no desire to see the film or have already seen it and aren’t planning to go a second time, you can still stop by and enjoy the displays.

Each display case is labeled with the name of the actor who wore the costume and the character they portrayed in the film (Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, Robert Downey Jr. as Lewis Strauss, and Florence Pugh as the psychiatrist Jean Tatlock).
This is not the first time Universal Studios CityWalk has displayed movie costumes from current releases. Most recently, they did it for films such as Cocaine Bear (2023) and Fast X (2023).
