“Beyond the Screen: Killers of the Flower Moon,” an exhibit featuring artifacts from the Apple Original film and celebrating the artisans who contributed to its making, is open this weekend from Nov. 17-19, and will reopen following the Thanksgiving holiday.
Among the many notable items from the film on display at Apple’s Los Angeles headquarters in Culver City are the wedding outfits worn by Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone; an immersive Osage roundhouse; collections of handmade Pendleton blankets; Stetson hats; a 1928 Chevy Coupe; and select props from the Billiard parlor set.

“This exhibit invites you to see, hear, touch, and feel your way through the world created by the film’s craftspeople. Discover how sound and composition serve as emotional drivers, examine the fine detail of the elaborate wardrobe design, and center yourself in the cinematic universe of Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon,” the exhibit description reads.
Directed by Martin Scorsese, “Killers of the Flower Moon” is based on David Grann’s 2017 novel of the same name. It follows the true events of the “Reign of Terror” in the early 1900s, in which members of the Osage Nation were murdered by white individuals seeking to gain their oil and wealth for themselves. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as oil-greedy Ernest Burkhart, while Lily Gladstone stars as his Osage wife Mollie Kyle.
Upon entering the exhibit, visitors will witness a scenic backdrop of the Pawhuska landscape in Oklahoma, where the story takes place. They will also find quotes from Scorsese and his personal annotated copy of Grann’s book. Visitors will find themselves immersed in an auditory experience with music from the original score composed by Robbie Robertson, behind-the-scenes photos of the recording process and a QR code to scan, which will direct participants to the film score on Apple Music.
Further into the exhibit, visitors will find a recreation of Mollie’s bedroom with the original bed, dresser, rocking chair and an original period stove. Some of the props also displayed include Mollie’s bible and rosary beads, Mollie’s pipe and an antique blue ball mason jar.
Later on, visitors will find a recreation of the wedding scene between Ernest and Mollie, which is where they will also see the wedding outfits. Here they will be able to view a documentary about Osage crafts, which were incorporated within characters’ outfits during the film’s wedding scene.
Afterward, visitors will venture into the billiards parlor with original props such as a 1920s billiards table and insulin boxes, the latter a reference to Mollie’s diabetes portrayed in the film.
Towards the end of the exhibit will be a set inspired by an Osage roundhouse and made entirely from cedar wood, where there will be six Osage outfits.
As a closing farewell, “Beyond the Screen: Killers of the Flower Moon” ties the events of the film back to the present. The last part of the exhibition will feature an original blanket created by Chad Renfro and worn by Chief Standing Bear of the Osage Nation on the red carpet at the film’s premiere; an original Osage song written for the film; the “Wahzhazhe Always” documentary about the Osage Nation; and the film’s credits sequence.
Although the exhibit is free, visitors must reserve a slot online. Additionally, there will be behind-the-scenes panels all weekend with the film’s artisans discussing their respective crafts. Information and tickets are available to reserve at killersoftheflowermoonexhibit.com.
