5th annual movie prop party in Toronto next weekend

Movie lovers, prop makers and collectors will unite at the fifth annual Toronto Prop Party, happening on August 8 at the Montecassino Hotel near Downsview Park.

What began as an intimate event for hobbyists has grown into a public party where anyone can come out to admire original movie and television props as well as stunning replicas. This year, it promises to feature a radio-controlled R2-D2, a Delorean time machine and an Ecto Containment Unit from the movie Ghostbusters.

Prop collectors were also in luck earlier this year thanks to the Hollywood North: The FXSMITH Studio Collection Auction, which had heaps of iconic material up for sale. Lots included items from movies such as X-Men, Platoon and Total Recall.

Prop Party Toronto is on August 8 and tickets will be on sale at the door for $10.

What movie prop would you most like to own? Let us know in the comments.
