About the Exhibition

Drawing on extensive archives from Kubrick's home and workplace, the exhibition features rare photographs and letters, original props and costumes, screenplays, production materials, and cameras from his nearly 50-year career.

Priceless items such as the 'Starchild' from 2001: A Space Odyssey, the dresses of the ghostly sisters from The Shining, the 'Born to Kill' helmet of Private Joker from Full Metal Jacket, and the authentic model of the 'War Room' in Dr. Strangelove are just a few of the many pieces on display.

Visitors will also learn about Kubrick's famously uncompleted projects Napoleon and The Aryan Papers. Materials such as research papers, costume designs, and shooting scripts document how far Kubrick had developed these projects, and testify to his comprehensive and meticulous working style.

The exhibition also spotlights Kubrick's early documentary shorts and his work as a photojournalist for Look magazine from 1945 to 1950.


The exhibition is organized by the Deutsches Filmmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, Christiane Kubrick, and the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts London, with the support of Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., Sony-Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc., Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc.,Universal Studios Inc., and SK Film Archives LLC.

Please note that the exhibition continues on the fourth floor. Don't miss your opportunity to see Kubrick's cameras and production materials in the CIBC Canadian Film Gallery!



To enhance your experience, we will issue timed-entry tickets to the exhibition. Timed-entry tickets guarantee admission, limit the number of visitors in the gallery, and minimize lineups. Timed-entry begins every half hour. Please note that the exhibition continues on the fourth floor.
