Stanley Kubrick at Design Museum

Today we are visiting the Design Museum taking advantage of once a month late opening of the museum. We will explore the world of Stanley Kubrick - one of the greatest filmakers of the 20th century. 

The exhibition tells the story of Stanley Kubrick, exploring his unique command of the creative design process of film making, from storyteller to director to editor.

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. Expect to see a detailed model of the Centrifuge-set that Kubrick had developed for 2001: A Space Odyssey; film props such as the infamous Born-to-Kill helmet worn by Private Joker in Full Metal Jacket, costumes designed for A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon and much more.

To book, please click here.  Book 6:15-6:30 slot.  Meet outside the entrance to the exhibition a few minutes before the time slot or inside the exhibition.  The exhibition is extensive.  If you would like to explore fully of every exhibit, you will probably need to take an earlier slot.   Book early to avoid soldout near the time.  

Post exhibition F&B will be at Scarsdale Tavern - a Fuller pub 5 minutes walk from the Design Museum at 23a Edwardes Square, Kensington, London W8 6HE.  I booked a table for 8 from 8:15pm till close.  Food is served till 10pm. For menu, please click here.

I've been to see the exhibition already and can confirm that you will need a MINIMUM of two hours as there are a number of film excerpts that are compelling including the "i'm Spartacus"sequence".
