Museum of the Moving Image Presents Stanley Kubrick's Sci-fi Epic 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY in 70mm, 7/5-13

Museum of the Moving Image presents six opportunities to experience Stanley Kubrick's 1968 science-fiction masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey in rare 70mm screenings over two consecutive weekends beginning July 5. As brilliantly engineered as the space program itself, Kubrick's mysterious and profound epic-"the ultimate trip"-is about nothing less than the beauty and banality of civilization, blending cool satire, an elaborate vision of the future, and passages of avant-garde cinematic inventiveness. Many of its sequences-from the spellbinding dawn of man to the spaceship ballet set to Strauss to the deadly Jupiter mission manned by HAL 9000 to the final Stargate mind-blower-are undeniable classics. With just eighteen minutes of dialogue, this is a sight-and-sound experience that simply can't be properly appreciated anywhere other than on a big screen. (Dir. Stanley Kubrick. 1968, 141 mins. 70mm. With Keir Dullea.)

Presented as part of the series See It Big! Science Fiction.
