REAL-LIFE ROCKY BALBOA EXHIBITION
Authentic Rocky Balboa Props and Costumes
From The Collection of Ronald M. Vastola
Borrowed from the collection of Ronald M. Vastola, Pennsylvania; this exhibition will feature a unique sampling of original prop and wardrobe items from the production of Rocky Balboa, the sixth and final film in the Rocky series, which began with the award-winning Rocky in 1976.
Rocky Balboa (rated PG) was released in theatres nationwide on December 20, 2006 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Columbia Pictures and Revolution Studios. The film starred Oscar-winning writer, director and producer Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa, Burt Young as Paulie, and real-life boxer Antonio Tarver as Mason "The Line" Dixon.
Today, over thirty years later, Philadelphia's favorite son “Rocky Balboa” continues to be recognized as a film icon, sports legend, and American hero.
Rocky Balboa ARTIFACTS
Numerous Rocky Balboa artifacts will be on public exhibit for the first time, including but not limited to: movie scripts, call sheets, art work, costumes, set-dressings, and memorabilia from Adrian's Restaurant. This exhibition will highlight faith themes presented in Rocky Balboa.
Vastola credits a formerly active website named RockyResources.com for providing him with useful tools and materials to help organize and present this exhibition.
