2001: A Space Odyssey
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Stanley Kubrick. 1968, 149 mins. (plus intermission). 70mm unrestored print from the film’s 50th anniversary in 2018. 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.
