Event Details

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY in 70mm

 Q&A with actor Keir Dullea following the screening on July 5

50th anniversary; 70mm engagement. One week only, July 5-12.

"For the first time since the original release, this 70mm print was struck from new printing elements made from the original camera negative. This is a true photochemical film recreation. There are no digital tricks, remastered effects, or revisionist edits. This is the unrestored film - that recreates the cinematic event that audiences experienced fifty years ago." - director Christopher Nolan 

With 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, director Stanley Kubrick redefined the limits of filmmaking and cemented his legacy as one of the most revolutionary and influential film directors of all time. Originally released in 70mm Cinerama roadshow format following the film's world premiere on April 2, 1968, at the Uptown Theater in Washington, D.C., 2001 ignited the imaginations of critics and audiences alike and its impact continues to resonate to this day. Stanley Kubrick's dazzling, Academy Award®-winning achievement is a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality. "Open the pod bay doors, HAL." Let an awesome journey unlike any other begin. DIR/SCR/PROD Stanley Kubrick; SCR Arthur C. Clarke, from his short story "The Sentinel." U.S., 1968, color, 142 min plus one 20-min intermission. NOT RATED
