FedScoop’s Social Studies keeps tabs on the latest lifestyle news and events around the Beltway.
The embargo has been lifted: the “Anchorman” exhibit is now open at the Newseum.
Fans of the film will see costumes, props and a recreation of the popular Will Ferrell movie’s fictional KVWN-TV anchor desk and news set, where visitors can pose for photos.
The museum will stay classy by using the movie’s humor as a backdrop to showcase the challenges women faced when entering the news business in the 1970s.
In December, Ferrell will visit the Newseum for an invitation-only event, where the funny man will discuss reprising his role as Ron Burgundy in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” which opens in theaters this Christmas.
The “Anchorman” exhibit will be featured at the museum through August.
