2001: A Space Odyssey The IMAX Experience
Engagement extended until September 27.
Continuing the 50th anniversary celebration of Stanley Kubrick’s science fiction masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey,” Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing the film to IMAX® theatres across North America. This marks the first time ever that moviegoers will have the opportunity to view the seminal film on the largest possible screen, creating a truly immersive experience.
The IMAX engagement comes on the heels of the widely successful “unrestored” 70mm film release of “2001: A Space Odyssey,” which was overseen by acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, a lifelong admirer of Kubrick. IMAX theaters will be presenting a brand new 4K restoration.
Widely considered among the greatest films of the 20th century, “2001: A Space Odyssey” was originally released on April 4, 1968, igniting the imaginations of both critics and audiences. With the film, Kubrick redefined the limits of moviemaking and cemented his legacy as one of the most revolutionary and influential motion picture directors of all time.
“2001: A Space Odyssey” was directed and produced by Kubrick from a screenplay he co-wrote with legendary science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke. The film stars Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood.
