The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will celebrate the life and career of legendary filmmaker, Stanley Kubrick, on Wednesday at 7:30pm at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Malcolm McDowell, who starred in the director’s acclaimed 1971 sci-fi crime drama, ‘A Clockwork Orange,’ will host “An Academy Salute to Stanley Kubrick.” The salute will feature film clips and personal remembrances by the director’s friends and collaborators, including Paul Mazursky, Ryan O’Neal and Matthew Modine.
The salute will be presented in association with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). The museum will also have a screening series, titled “2012: A Kubrick Odyssey,” as well as the exhibit “Stanley Kubrick.”
“An Academy Salute to Stanley Kubrick” will also launch the satellite exhibit “Stanley Kubrick: The Ultimate Trip,” in the Academy’s Grand Lobby Gallery, where it will be on view until March 3, 2013. The exhibit shows the writer and producer’s creative process through through film posters, photographs, advertising trailers, production design drawings, screenplay drafts and correspondence.
