This Weekend at LACMA: Celebrate Kubrick with a Party and Films, CicLAvia, the Music of Stephen Prina and Hans Richter, and More

LACMA’s silver screen plays host to four films this weekend, two nights worth of the Kubrick and Co film series. Friday night, beginning with Hour of the Wolf at 7:30 pm and The Shining at 9:10 pm in the Bing Theater, we journey into the minds of tortured artists. Add a touch of surrealism and, for good measure, a child with ESP and call it a night. For a glimpse into the madness, view the teaser trailer for Kubrick’s modern horror below. On Saturday night, beginning at 5 pm, two period films, Lola Montes and Barry Lyndon, recount tales of yore, both with masterful cinematography and intricate costumes. Tickets for Kubrick and Co. evenings are available over the phone, 323 857-6010, or online.

On Saturday night we’re throwing the Stanley Kubrick Closing Party and staying open late till 11 pm for the occasion. Everyone’s invited to one of the last few chances to see the sweeping Stanley Kubrick exhibition before it closes on June 30. Tickets to this LACMA Muse event are available to the general public but are going fast.

CicLAvia takes over Wilshire Boulevard Sunday morning and the western end of the route stops at LACMA’s doorstep. Join us from 9 am–4 pm for a free Spin Art Studio, a free Temporary Tattoo Parlour, a free Costume Photo Booth with unlimited prints, KCRW DJ Dan Wilcox spinning from 1–3 pm, Andell Family Sundays, giveaways, and more. Expect large crowds—ride your bike or take Metro to avoid the stress of very limited parking.

Two exhibitions on the west side of campus have related special programming, Stephen Prina: As He Remembered It and Hans Richter: Encounters. Stephen Prina Concert: The Way He Always Wanted It XI is the artist’s new sextet, set to play in the Pavilion for Japanese Art at 2 pm on Saturday. The concert is followed by a tour of the exhibition led by the artist himself.  On Sunday at 3 pm in the Brown Auditorium the program Keeping Score: Hans Richter’s Filmic Encounters with Music, presented in cooperation with USC, addresses the way Richter incorporated music into his diverse films. Both events are free and require no reservations.
