    It is obviously a fake theatrical door, a couple of times in the movie when the door is closed it is obvious it is very light weight.

    This one looks like a real Mosler door.

    Default Movie: Vault

    A movie called simply Vault was released June 20 2019. It deals with a 1975 robbery of a safe deposit vault inside Hudson Fur & Leather Center in Providence, Rhode Island, which was used by the Mafia. The actual vault door was a modest Mosler door:

    Default Movie: Finding Steve McQueen

    On March 15 2019 a movie called "Finding Steve McQueen" was released. It covers the 1972 burglary of the United California Bank in Laguna Niguel, California. They were trying to find Richard Nixon's stash of illegal contributions.

    The movie trailer does not clearly show the vault door. If I get a chance to watch this I'll report on it.

    I watched the movie and can't say much about it that's good. It does say it was inspired by actual events, not that it's a documentary. They take great liberties with the story.

    Here is what the vault exterior looks like -

    As for the interior, it looks like it was built from cinder blocks which would not be the case -

    A short time ago (9/1) the movie "Vault" was mentioned. I watched the movie and in general was not impressed. It does tell the story of the Bonded Vault robbery in Providence and it does seem to follow the general story well. It's not a documentary. Very little of it involves the robbery itself which didn't surprise me. It probably appeals to those who are interested in the history of organized crime, especially in Rhode Island.

    I'd give it a C- or maybe D+ grade.
