Mondo and the Alamo Drafthouse Are Bringing Four Stanley Kubrick Movies Back to Theaters This Year
Here's some cool news for cinephiles out there: Mondo, Warner Bros., Alamo Drafthouse, and the Kubrick Estate have teamed up to bring four Stanley Kubrick films back to theaters in 2017. The four films in question: A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Full Metal Jacket, and The Shining. In addition to the one night only screenings, Mondo and Alamo Drafthouse have acquired the official licensing rights to those films and will be creating exclusive apparel that "draws directly from film assets and features some of the most iconic imagery from Kubrick's legendary oeuvre."
The series kicks off with A Clockwork Orange on February 21, 2017, and if you live near a Drafthouse location, you'll be able to see the film on the big screen that night. They don't have dates announced yet for the remaining three films, but I've personally never had a chance to see 2001 in a theater, and this sounds like a great chance to be able to finally make that happen.
Fans of a bit of the old ultra-violence and Ludwig Van will be in bliss and heaven to learn that the series will launch on February 21st with A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. Timed to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of CLOCKWORK author Anthony Burgess, the Alamo Drafthouse will screen Kubrick's dystopian droog tale for one night only at locations across the country. Each ticket will include a commemorative t-shirt featuring Kubrick's seminal CLOCKWORK opening shot of Alex, played by Malcolm McDowell. All other items in the A CLOCKWORK ORANGE collection will be available exclusively on mondotees.com.
As 2017 continues, each quarter Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo will continue to unleash new products and screenings for 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, FULL METAL JACKET and THE SHINING.
Alamo Drafthouse theaters participating in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE screenings include:
Houston: Mason Park
San Antonio: Westlakes
