The Contemporary Jewish Museum presents the first show dedicated to the legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick’s life and work. The exhibition presents materials from the private estate of the film director. His films are represented through annotated scripts, production photography, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes and props. Among the items on display are iconic objects such as the costumes for Starchild and the ape, both from "2001: A Space Odyssey," the little dresses of the sisters from "The Shining" (1980), the survival kit from "Dr. Strangelove" and the "born to kill" helmet of Private Joker from "Full Metal Jacket" (1987). Through Oct. 30.
