Piece: The canoe from Deliverance. John Boorman. 1972.
Where: The Burt Reynolds and Friends Museum. Jupiter, Florida.
Unfortunately, the museum closed to relocate two years ago and there seems to be no news about if or when it will reopen. In fact, the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theater doesn’t even mention its closing on its history page — you can, however, purchase a BRIFT mousepad at the website’s store (I’m seriously considering the Smokey and the Bandit T shirt that’s also available). So I wouldn’t go planning any trips to Jupiter, Florida any time soon.
