I finally made it out to the museum on Sunday and I have to tell you, it was worth the wait. The exhibit featured Kubrick's works from The Shining, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Spartacus, and more. From famous movie props to a look at his use of music in film, it was a fascinating perspective of his mindset as a creator. The exhibit easily eclipsed the Tim Burton exhibit at LACMA from several years ago.
If you happen to be in LA over the next few months, make this exhibit a priority. Tickets are $20 or free for members of the museum. For more information, visit the LACMA website.
