After the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's joint acquisition with the Getty of Robert Mapplethorpe's art and archives proved to be a major coup, LACMA now holds the distinction of being the first U.S. art institution to host an exhibit dedicated to filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. The retrospective, co-presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, chronicles the director's major works -- from 1957's anti-war Paths of Glory to his final head-scratcher, Eyes Wide Shut -- and includes such archival material as personal scripts, props, costumes and photographs dating back to the 1940s, when Kubrick began his career as a staff photographer for Look magazine. Highlights also include an alternate ending to 2001: A Space Odyssey and sections dedicated to Kubrick's use of technology and his unfinished projects. LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Blvd.; thru June 30; $20. (323) 857-6000, lacma.org.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 1. Continues through June 30, 2012
