On our last full day in LA, a small group of us went to visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). With some students and staff having already visited the museum on the trip and saying how good it was, along with several enthusiastic “you MUST go to LACMA”’s prior to travelling, we thought it would be a nice way to wind down the trip. ‘LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection that includes nearly 130,…
On Wednesday, the whole group met up at the Warner Bros. Archive at USC, where we were given a tour by the curator, Brett. The tour began with a brief overview of the history of the archive.

Today we started off with the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. We had this booked well in advance of our trip, to make sure we could book a day/time slot that wouldn’t interfere with days in the libraries and archives. With my own research interests being pre-1940s cinema, the majority of this tour was more suited to the other student’s areas of research; particularly those who are looking at much more contemporary cinema. However, my own love for the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts… franchises,…
