50 Years of James Bond Title Sequences Get Their Own LACMA Exhibit

It's the 50th anniversary of "Dr. No" and James Bond's presence on the silver screen. If you're a Bond fan, this is your month in Los Angeles.

LACMA will be hosting an exhibit featuring the famous title sequences from all 22 James Bond movies. You can also catch double-features of the Bond movies at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica starting this weekend.

LACMA is partnering with Loyola Marymount University's School of Film and Television program to bring you all 22 title sequences from the Bond movies. The sequences featuring those famous Bond girls will be displayed on 40" screens (with headphones available) in the Art of the Americas Building at LACMA. The exhibit titled "...Is James Bond" opens tomorrow through September 9. For more info, check out LACMA's website.

On Saturday night, you can watch four of the movies in their entirety on the big screen at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica. You can watch a double feature of "Goldfinger" and "Thunderball" at 7:30 pm on Saturday, and "You Only Live Twice" and "on Her Majesty's Secret Service" at 5 pm. (And there will be more screenings throughout the month.)
