LOS ANGELES, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Turner Classic Movies has opened its first retail outlet, as part of a new exhibition of classic movie memorabilia in Los Angeles.

In the Picture is intended only as a temporary storefront, and is scheduled to close on Dec. 31. It features classic movie-themed merchandise for sale, as well as an exhibition of memorabilia from Hollywood classics.

Visitors will be able to see the piano and doors from Rick's Café, as seen in "Casablanca" (1942). The exhibit also includes costumes and other props, and the movie's Best Picture Oscar.

Other items in the exhibit include the falcon from "The Maltese Falcon" (1941), the robe worn by Katharine Hepburn in "Adam's Rib" (1949), one of the original scripts from the "The Wizard of Oz" (1939) and a dress worn by Elizabeth Taylor in "Giant" (1956).

The retail outlet was originally conceived as a showcase for the new TCM book "In the Picture: Production Stills from the TCM Archives," and the new game "Scene It: The Turner Classic Movies Edition."
