Stanley Kubrick Exhibit At LACMA

In Los Angeles, we are lucky enough to enjoy the best of filmmaking with movie studios, award shows, and film premieres.  Over the last five months, there has been an incredible exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) honoring the work of filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. It runs through June 30 and it has been on my list all winter long.

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.

Enjoy the photos of my day with Stanley Kubrick:

 Stanley loved chess...notice how often he features the game in his movies.

 Shelley Duvall was good with a knife.
