Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is Being Re-Released in IMAX!
I have never seen Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey on the big screen. I tried to go once to a special screening but it ended up selling out and I wasn't able to get in. This is one film that I've always wanted to see on the big screen and it looks like I'm finally going to get my chance! Not only that, but I'll get to see it the best way possible... in IMAX!
In honor of the film's 50th anniversary, Warner Bros. is going to re-release the film in IMAX in select theaters. These theaters will be located in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Toronto starting on August 24th.
Christopher Nolan recently oversaw 2001: A Space Odyssey’s restoration in 70mm print, but this is the first time the film will be offered in IMAX. The film is also getting a 4K home entertainment release.
Tickets go on sale this Friday in the following locations: AMC Universal Citywalk IMAX in L.A., AMC Lincoln Square IMAX in New York City, AMC Metreon IMAX in San Francisco, and Ontario Place Cinesphere IMAX in Toronto.
2001: A Space Odyssey follows Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood as astronauts on a journey to Jupiter with the computer HAL 9000 after the discovery of a mysterious black monolith with a profound effect on human evolution.
Hopefully I'm able to get a ticket this time!
