I see that the report has been updated, and that they say it destroyed the building that houses the King Kong exhibit.  Has anyone been to it before?  Were any original props or other items on display?

They are reporting that a vault containing reels and videos was damaged, though they also say that there are duplicates of the videos stored in the vault.  Hopefully, they mean duplicates for all of them, because they are saying it was 40,000 to 50,000 items in there.

A real shame . . . a big chunk of our cultural history, the good and the bad, went up in flames today.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
