The Stanley Kubrick exhibit at the LACMA ($20 per ticket) was unlike an exhibit I have seen before. The history behind each one of Kubrick’s films was extraordinarily comprehensive, well-documented, and for public viewing.I bought Seth tickets as a Christmas present + it turned out to be a fantastic five hour adventure. 1-5 The Shining’s famous proverb on reams of paper, Jack Torrance’s typewriter, twin’s outfit, the axes + the hedge maze, and the original photograph prop, captioned “Overlook Hotel, July 4th Ball, 1921” with a young Jack in the bottom center.
6-8 Some ultraviolence of A Clockwork Orange’s Korova Milk Bar servers + Alex’s costume.
9-12 2001: A Space Odyssey’s Dr. Bowman as a star-child, HAL 9000’s eye (little known fact: the eye is really a Cinerama 160-degree Fairchild-Curtis wide-angle lens and HAL was created in Urbana, Illinois), the monolith, and the room in which Dr. Bowman grows old and dies.
13 A model version of the war room from the 1964 cult classic, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
14 A still from Lolita.
