The Newseum’s ‘Anchorman’ exhibit opens today

November 14, 2013

The dynamic news team from the 2004's "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" is together again for a sequel, "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues." Yes, I'm worried it won't live up to it's predecessor. Yes, I'm still going to see it.

If you want an "Anchorman" fix before the film's Dec. 20 release, head to the Newseum to see props, costumes and footage in "Anchorman: The Exhibit," which opens today.

The exhibit, which will remain on display until Aug. 31, features a re-creation of the KVWN-TV anchor desk from the film, Ron Burgundy's jazz flute and more. The Newseum produced a documentary for the exhibit about women who broke into the news business in the 1970s and the challenges they faced.

The Newseum is also hosting a sold-out advance screening of the new film Dec. 17, with David Koechner (Whammy!) and Jake Tapper. Instead, visit the museum Saturday at 2:30 p.m. for an "Inside Media" chat with ABC7 reporter Arch Campbell and NBC4 anchor Wendy Rieger, who will talk about the news business in the 70s.
