London Gets Kubrick Archives

Result! The extensive archives of Stanley Kubrick will be housed at the University of the Arts as of next summer.

The Observer reported over the weekend that the University will be building a new centre to house the vast collection (in Elephant & Castle no less), which has never been displayed in this country.

The collection includes boxes and boxes of Kubrick gold, including scripts, research (that bloody Napoleon film he never made), fan letters, stationery, photographs and props.

Is you want to get a good idea of just how valuable and huge the collection is then you could do worse than read Jon Ronson's fantastic account of the time he spent on the Kurbrick estate rummaging through the director's archive.

And for more Kubrick links can we point you in the direction of the Stuff about Stanley Kubrick page over at Coudal.com.
