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).

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
