2001: A Space Odyssey (70mm)
Location la: Redstone Theater
Dir. Stanley Kubrick. 1968, 149 mins. (plus intermission). 70mm print from Warner Bros. 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, passages of avant-garde cinematic inventiveness, and an elaborate vision of the future. The celebrated new 70mm print, supervised by Christopher Nolan, was struck from new printing elements made from the original camera negative.
