PIGEON FORGE – From June 17, 2017 until Labor Day, the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge will display costumes from James Cameron’s film, Titanic.

Titanic is a 1997 American epic romance-disaster film directed, written, co-produced, and co-edited by James Cameron. A fictionalized account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ship during its ill-fated maiden voyage.

Released on December 19, 1997, Titanic was nominated for fourteen Academy Awards and won eleven, including the awards for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Costume Design. With an initial worldwide gross of over $1.84 billion, it was the first film to reach the billion-dollar mark, according to Wikipedia.

“The idea (of bringing the costumes to Pigeon Forge) is to bring fans closer to the magic of this movie than ever before,” says Titanic Museum owners John Joslyn and Mary Kellogg of Cedar Bay Entertainment.
