Does this room look familiar?
Part of a much larger art project called the 14th Factory in Los Angeles’ Lincoln Heights district, this is a faithful recreation of the bedroom from 2001: A Space Odyssey by artist Simon Birch and architect Paul Kember, whose uncle and great uncle were draughtsmen on Stanley Kubrick’s movie and worked on the original set.
Part of the attraction appears to be that visitors can interact with the room, sit on the chairs and lie on the bed, which is a rare treat for Kubrick fans as the director was notoriously obsessed with destroying all props and sets once he’d used them.
The Map, which is loosely based on the style of a vintage Los Angeles street map has its own Hollywood Boulevard and includes districts dedicated to Hitchcock and Cult British Horror movies. Like most cities it also has its own Red Light area. There’s an A-Z key at the base of the Map listing all the films featured with their release dates and names of the directors.

Sploid’s Rhett Jones sez:
Robert Zemeckis has been hit or miss for almost two decades. But in the eighties, he was on fire.

You know, for kids.
