Brainstorm in 70mm



Dir. Douglas Trumbull, 1983, 106 mins. 70mm print from Warner Bros. Classics. Douglas Trumbull’s science-fiction thriller about a device that can record thoughts and dreams features stunning visual effects to portray telepathic experiences, cutting between widescreen and standard size. It also features the last performance by Natalie Wood, who died during the making of the film. Brainstorm has not been shown in 70mm in New York for more than 20 years.

Due to technical issues, this screening has been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date. Instead, the Museum will add an encore screening of 2001: A Space Odyssey (both Saturday and Sunday evening). We apologize for any inconvenience.
