The Warner Bros. film studio was founded in April 1923 by a quartet of immigrant brothers, Albert, Sam, Harry, and Jack Warner, who had previously worked as traveling film exhibitors throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania. Realizing that the growth of their nascent studio would be improved with film production, they headed West, to Culver City, California, where they built the studio that soon brought sound to the cinema with The Jazz Singer (1927), perfected the gangster film with The Public Enemy (1931), produced the iconic Casablanca (1942), and so much more.

Over the last two decades the studio has given global audiences epic film franchises like the Harry Potter series and a formidable trilogy of trilogies: The Lord of the Rings, Christopher Nolan’s Batman, and The Matrix; elegant examinations of American history (Good Night and Good Luck); and cheeky humor (The Campaign, Dark Shadows, The Hangover). The studio has also been home base for Clint Eastwood’s Malpaso Productions for decades, resulting in films like Gran Torino and Trouble with the Curve.

This selection of Warner Bros. productions from the past 20 years, all drawn from MoMA’s collection, illustrates the studio’s continuing commitment to the artistic and commercial legacy of the four Warner brothers, some 90 years later.

Organized by Anne Morra, Associate Curator, Department of Film.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
