Welly welly welly...

The influence of the late Stanley Kubrick is as impossible to escape as rolling news about global warming or the Trump administration.

From Premier-Inn-gone-stupendously-wrong nightmare The Shining, to the cosmically-balletic 2001: A Space Odyssey, Kubrick's iconography is seared into our collective consciousness. He did a lot of shooting in London, too.

In April, Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition lands at London's Design Museum. It's already been on something of a world tour — so we've got a good idea what to expect.

Props from movies — including the 'Born to Kill' helmet from Full Metal Jacket, the typewriter from The Shining and egregious anatomical furniture from the Korova Milk Bar in A Clockwork Orange — are on display.

Things get interactive, with the chance to roam the gaudily-carpeted corridors of The Overlook Hotel, and even get a selfie with your head stuck through the axed bathroom doors, while gurning: "Heeereeeee's Johnny!"

You can also geek-out at the sight of filming equipment Kubrick used to create some of cinema's most memorable moments, plus the director's chair.
