Propstore has been holding a preview exhibition (by appointment on their website) at their office facility in Valencia, California. The last day for that exhibition is tomorrow. The exhibition features “over 80 lots, giving fans the opportunity to see props and costumes from the auction up close and ask questions to the specialists.”
Propstore COO Brandon Alinger had this to say about the event: “This year, Propstore’s Los Angeles Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction contains many never seen before treasures from film and television content, including the screen-matched Evil Clown who dragged Robbie under the bed in Poltergeist. We’ll also be reuniting Oliver Robins, who played Robbie, with the doll at our VIP Auction Preview at the Petersen Automotive Museum on June 24th.“
Oliver Robins added: “It will be a surreal and wondrous moment to stand before the Clown Doll. Soon to be reunited after 40 years. It’s time to make peace with the tormentor of my childhood and make amends with this old foe.“
