Stanley Kubrick, one of the most influential film directors of the twentieth century, left behind a legacy of filming styles, stories, and recognitions at an international level.
The director passed away in 1999 but his impact on cinema was so profound that an art exhibition based on his work has taken direction around the world, and Mexico is no exception.
Approximately half an hour away from your luxury hotel on Paseo de la Reforma, is the National Cineteca, one of the most important venues for film exhibitions not only in Mexico City, but in the whole country.
Here you will find, in addition to a great variety of independent film projects – many of which do not make it to the big screen in conventional movie theatres – other exhibitions such as Stanley Kubrick’s which began on December 1, 2016 and will run until May 29, 2017. This includes an exhibit of famous objects that honor the work of the eccentric director.
The spaces throughout the exhibit are completely adapted so that when you enter the room, you feel as though you’re walking around inside one of the many famous films devised by the brilliant mind of Kubrick. You will feel yourself floating through space, or immersed in the world of A Clockwork Orange – one of the most controversial films in cinematography, and eventually evolved into what is known as a cult film.
Costumes, mannequins, special effects, and much more make up this exhibition, curated by Hans Peter Reichmann and Tim Heptner, it emerges as an alternative to traditional museums for visitors who are visiting our luxury hotel in Mexico City. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn more about the famous work of the American director.
For those who are interested in visiting the exhibition, you are able to download an app that will allow you to really get a glimpse into the director’s life, and that also serves as a self-guide of the exhibition.
The exhibit is accessible 7 days a week, from 12 pm to 7 pm, and lasts approximately 2 hours.
