Art: 'Bob Peak: Creating the Modern Movie Poster'

January 20, 2011

Like the films they advertise, movie posters can be dull, formulaic, even obtuse. But as the exhibition "Bob Peak: Creating the Modern Movie Poster" demonstrates, some bills manage to be more — intriguing hooks, elegant examples of succinct storytelling, works of art in their own right. This collection of original paintings and final one-sheet posters by the distinguished designer Bob Peak feature such memorable films as "Superman," "Apocalypse Now" and "The Spy Who Loved Me." Fourth Floor Gallery, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, 8949 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thu. and Fri. Noon-6 p.m. Sat. and Sun. Free. (310) 247-3000. http://www.oscars.org.
