In honor of this special film anniversary, the Coronado Historical Association is excited to announce its newest exhibit: Coronado’s Golden Age of Film, open November 2018 to March 2019. The exhibit features a retrospective of Coronado’s fascinating film history, including a Coronado Hall of Fame of the many cinematic Coronadans, like Johnny Downs and Anita Page. The Marilyn Monroe gallery closes on January 3, 2019. Don't miss your chance to see Marilyn's clothing and personal items. The rest of the film exhibit will be open until Sunday, March 3. Following the closing of the exhibit, the museum galleries will be closed in preparation of the Association's 50th Anniversary Exhibition.
