BMI co-sponsored the grand opening reception for the exhibit, "Film Noir: The Music That Sets The Tone" at the Hollywood Entertainment Museum. The exhibit displays works from the Film Noir genre and features BMI composers Don Davis and Christopher Young, along with dozens of other classic and contemporary composers.

Shown at the reception are exhibit co-curator Warren Sherk, BMI composer Christopher Young, exhibit co-curator Jan-Christopher Horak, BMI's Ivanne Deneroff and BMI composer Don Davis.

The exhibit, co-presented by the Film Music Society, runs through June 7 and chronicles the composers' approach to scoring through disc recordings, music sketches and manuscripts, photographs, sheet music, cue sheets and other production-related materials.
