LACMA is exploring the intersection of film and art with their new Stanley Kubrick exhibit. Reporter Michael Linder takes Arts Alive to LACMA to view the photographs, annotated scripts, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props that the museum is using to trace the legacy of one of filmmakings most notorious directors.

Tim Robbins is famous for his big screen roles in films like Bull Durham, The Shawshank Redemption and The Player. No matter how high his star rose, Robbins never severed his ties to the stage, or to the troupe he helped found decades ago, The Actors Gang. This week on Arts Alive, Reporter Laura Ornest will sit down with Robbins to talk about the state of the stage.

The Baroque meets high tech in Paul Elie's new book Reinventing Bach. In the book, Elie describes how the music of Johann Sebastian Bach has been reinvented using modern technology and how Bach himself probably wouldn't mind the change. Paul Elie explains on the show this week.
