Behind the Scenes: Installing "Stanley Kubrick"

October 24, 2012

In anticipation of the opening of Stanley Kubrick on November 1, we thought we’d give you a behind-the-scenes look at installing the exhibition. The first retrospective of the legendary filmmaker in the United States, this exhibition brings together hundreds of objects that document Kubrick’s uncompromising vision and his groundbreaking films, including 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, The Shining, Lolita, and many more.

Reserve your tickets now. Want to see Stanley Kubrick before anyone else? Join LACMA today (members get free tickets and preview days: October 28–30) or buy a ticket to LACMA Muse's Stanley Kubrick–themed Costume Ball—partygoers get a sneak peek.
