UK horror fans, here’s a unique attraction to add to your to-do list! An exhibit celebrating the works of director Stanley Kubrick has just opened in London, and it features an assortment of props, costumes and equipment used by the iconic filmmaker.
The Design Museum explain; “You’ll see step by step how Kubrick created genre-defining worlds for his films and relive iconic scenes from The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Get an exclusive insight into his mind through rare objects, projections and interviews exploring Kubrick’s special relationship with England and particularly London, as his primary film location and source of inspiration.”
The exhibition features about 700 objects, films, interviews, letters and photographs. Horror fans might particularly want to check out the array of objects on display from the set of The Shining, including the costumes of the infamous twins. A large replica model of the hotel maze from the film is also displayed in the exhibit.
As well as displaying these artefacts, the exhibit is partnered by BFI’s Kubrick season – giving fans the chance to see the director’s most celebrated films on the big screen.
