THE Hugh Jackman film The Wolverine, which overran Picton last fortnight, gave the area a taste of Hollywood.
Ted Rixon, of the Picton Chamber of Commerce, hopes it can be preserved.
He has asked the film's producers if Picton can keep two murals erected in Menangle Street as props for the film. Both murals — Ed's Bar and The Yukon: A Sportsman's Paradise — are paper prints and need to be sealed so that they don't tear.
Mr Rixon said producers of The Wolverine would return to seal one of the murals. He said he wanted the town to "cash in" on the hype the movie set had created.
"We want to keep the buzz alive if we can get the murals to last until the movie screens in July next year," he said.
He says people will be curious about the set and visit Picton. "I'd like to think that we can cash in on it," he said.
He also raised the idea of having an open-air theatre when the film screens.
Wollondilly mayor Col Mitchell said he too wanted to rescue the murals. "You can't buy publicity like this," he said.
