If you are staying in a Los Angeles vacation rental and are a movie-enthusiast, then you won’t want to miss out on the exhibit dedicated to filmmaker Stanley Kubrick at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
Kubrick, who made a name for himself by creating famous flicks like “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “A Clockwork Orange” and “The Shining,” was known among those in the film world as someone who felt compelled to exercise complete artistic authority over all his projects. In doing so, he became one of the most revered directors of all time.
Residents and tourists alike will have the opportunity to travel through Kubrick’s career. Marvel at the photographs he took in the ’40s for Look Magazine and gain an in-depth understanding of his achievements in the movies that spanned more than 40 years.
For around $20, you’ll get an inside peek at his own scripts he edited as well as notes on production, set models, outfits the actors wore while filming and props that were used. Kubrick’s unfinished projects like “The Aryan Papers” and “Napoleon” will allow viewers to see how the technology he was using in his flicks was much more advanced than his contemporaries.
Those who can’t get enough of this creative genius can also attend the film series, which runs until December 15. Watch the movies that he directed, such as “Full Metal Jacket” and “Eyes Wide Shut.” If you can’t see any of his motion pictures in the museum, then you’ll have every day of the week except Wednesday until June 30 to see the full exhibit.
