From its humble beginnings as a one-van commercial transportation service for photographers, Quixote has grown into a full-service production studio in two short decades. Founded and nurtured by LA natives and UCLA grads Mikel Elliott and Jordan Kitaen, Quixote now supplies the entertainment and advertising industries with facilities, equipment, vehicles, and whatever else they may need to get the job done. They recently pumped $1 million into their production-supplies department, allowing them to supply jobs with crucial gear such as iPhones and 4G WiFi boxes so that directors need not summon starlets from their trailers via tin-can phone.

Moving picture began by depicting a horse running at full gallop, and has now evolved into visually stimulating films like Star Wars, Star Trek, and Planet of the Apes, which can all be seen at The Hollywood Museum. Visitors meander through a 35,000-square-foot, four-floor maze of more than 10,000 authentic movie props, costumes, and memorabilia. Previously a Prohibition-era speakeasy, the subterranean floor beckons patrons down Hannibal Lecter's The Silence of the Lambs jail corridor into the full cell used in the film, storing spine-tingling treasures such as his muzzling mask. First-floor doors open into Max Factor's restored makeup rooms, which border Cary Grant's Rolls-Royce and The Wizard of Oz's ruby slippers, which tempt visitors to slip them on and teleport to Kansas. Costumes, props, awards, and photos crowd the upper two floors, where Sylvester Stallone's Razzie for Worst Actor of the Century finds a home next to threads that once hugged Marilyn Monroe's legendary curves. In the past, rotating exhibits have showcased such items as a script and autographed poster from Slumdog Millionaire, duds modeled by the quick-stepping cast of High School Musical 3, and rows of awards for TV shows and particularly supercalifragilisticexpialidocious spelling-bee performances.
