Hollywoodnews.com: Two events running concurrently in Los Angeles are honoring the late Elizabeth Taylor, who left us recently but lives on in the memory of film fans around the globe.

The Hollywood Museum and the American Cinematheque’s Egyptian Theatre have joined forces to pay tribute to Taylor. The museum, located at 1660 N. Highland Avenue in L.A., is premiering a special exhibit entitled “Elizabeth Taylor: Hollywood Icon and Enchantress — the Girl with the Violet Eyes.” The Hollywood Museum exhibit, according to a release, includes props, palace ornaments and Taylor’s gown and cape ensemble from “Cleopatra;” her riding hat from “National Velvet;” her show-stopping costume from “Malice in Wonderland;” and an intimate look at her transformation from childhood through early adulthood, courtesy of Hollywood’s makeup king, Max Factor.

Concurrently American Cinematheque presents the “Lovely Tumult: A Tribute To Elizabeth Taylor Film Series,” which began on May 5 and runs through May 15.

The Egyptian Theatre, located at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, plans to screen most of Taylor’s classic films, including “Place in the Sun;” “Suddenly, Last Summer;” “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof;” “The Taming of the Shrew;” “Cleopatra;” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and “Giant.”
