Looking for that last little detail to make your sci-fi costume party go with a bang? Need an extra-enormous laser gun to scare the kids off your lawn? Planning to clone Leonard Nimoy? Then you need Prop Store, the auction house specialising in movie memorabilia. As they gear up for their annual auction on September 23 at the BFI IMAX in Waterloo, the Prop Store team gave us peak at their ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’-style warehouse piled to the rafters with eye-frazzling film cast-offs. Many of these items will be on display at the IMAX in a free exhibition that’s running until the auction. So if you’re dying to clap eyes on Superman’s undercrackers, here’s your chance. But first, take our behind the scenes tour in pictures.
