With Illumination's movie based on the Super Mario Bros. series releasing later this year, it's got some of us looking back on the 1993 film starring Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo as Mario and Luigi.

Critics and audiences didn't necessarily love the film back when it first came out, with many at the time responding negatively to its deviations from the source material. However, we have to admit it still holds a special place in our hearts today for just how bafflingly weird and inventive it all is.

So, if you're particularly nostalgic like us and want to know more about how it was made, you'll be excited to hear that a museum in the US — in this case, the National Video Game Museum in Frisco, Texas — is about to host a new exhibit celebrating the film's 30th anniversary.

This new exhibit will open on the 24th of March and features props from the film as well as other behind-the-scenes information. The folks behind the web series 'SMB Inside the Pipe' are responsible for putting it together and have been tweeting updates on social media in the run-up to opening.

Sadly, being based in the UK, we can't necessarily justify making a stateside visit for this. So, if you find yourself heading down to it, we'd love to see your pictures! You can send them to us at @timeextension64!
