"Stanley Kubrick," the gigantic exhibition devoted to the perfectionist filmmaker that ran at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, proved to be a popular draw with the public, attracting 243,792 visitors during its eight-month stay, according to the museum.
The exhibition, which opened in November and closed June 30, ran for 242 days and had a daily average of a little more than 1,000 visitors. LACMA estimates that about 28% of the attendees were first-time visitors to the museum, based on a survey it conducted.
The figures are healthy for an L.A. museum exhibition, but the show didn't surpass LACMA's 2011 "Tim Burton," which drew 363,271 visitors in a shorter time period.
"Tim Burton" ran for nearly 135 days, with average daily attendance at around 2,700. The show was popular with families and children. The Kubrick exhibition, on the other hand, featured some graphic sexual and violent material that wasn't appropriate for younger visitors.
