Concluding the tour is a display of treasures from Warner Bros.’ most beloved films and TV shows in the “Celebration of Awards Season.” The exhibit spotlights props and costumes from classic films, such as the jersey worn by the late Chadwick Boseman to portray Jackie Robinson in “42” and a painstakingly detailed miniature blimp from Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner.”Danny Kahn, general manager of the tour, said that the studio is thrilled to welcome back visitors after being closed for 15 months due to the pandemic.
