Temporary Exhibit: The 25th Anniversary of Casino
The Mob Museum will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the landmark movie Casino with a temporary exhibit featuring artifacts, memorabilia and rare photographs. The 1995 movie, directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Sharon Stone, is widely regarded as one of the best Mob movies of all time. The entire movie was shot in Las Vegas, and thousands of locals worked on the crew, played extras or even had small speaking parts. The exhibit will display an array of movie props linked to the Tangiers hotel-casino, the fictional stand-in for the real-life Stardust on the Las Vegas Strip. Other artifacts include an original script donated by Frank Cullotta, the late Chicago mobster who served as a consultant to Scorsese and also played a hitman in the film; rare photographs from the set donated by former Mob defense attorney Oscar Goodman, who played himself in the movie; prop newspapers printed in Las Vegas for use in the movie; and more.
Debuting November 13, the exhibit will be located on the Museum’s first floor and will be on display until November 14, 2021.
