2001: A Space Odyssey (New 70mm print)
Sunday, August 5, 6:30 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater
50th anniversary screening featuring a new 70mm print
Dir. Stanley Kubrick. 1968, 149 mins. (plus intermission). 70mm. With Keir Dullea. As brilliantly engineered as the space program itself, Stanley Kubrick’s mysterious and profound epic—“the ultimate trip”—is about nothing less than the beauty and the banality of civilization, blending cool satire, an elaborate vision of the future, and passages of avant-garde cinematic inventiveness. 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 will be the exclusive New York engagement for July and early August.
