Stanley Kubrick’s Brand New Super Panavision 70 mm. Print !!

(1968, Warner Bros. Classics, 139 min.) "I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that," murmurs supercomputer HAL 9000 as it attempts to eliminate bothersome human astronaut Keir Dullea in master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick’s literally mind-blowing meditation on the inherent dangers (and wonders) of technology, the limitless vistas of space, and the future of the human race itself. Based on a 1948 short story "The Sentinel" by Arthur C. Clarke, "2001" was reconceived by Kubrick himself, working with author Clarke to create the ultimate Journey into the Unknown. But if you think you’ve seen "2001," think again – until recently, the film was only available in a 35 mm. version that reduced Kubrick’s legendary visuals (and the spectacular 6-track stereo sound) to a pale shadow of their true glory. Before his death, Kubrick oversaw a painstaking, frame-by-frame restoration of the film in 70 mm. – resulting in a version that looks and sounds as good (if not better) than the original 1968 release!!

 

Showtimes:

3:00 PM, 6:00 PM, 9:00 PM daily. (The 9 PM show on Dec. 31 has been cancelled due to street closures in the area for a New Year's Eve event. Please note that the best way to approach the Egyptian on Dec. 31 will be to come in from the south behind the theatre (Selma Ave). The closure is from Cherokee east for a large street event. We have also been informed that there will be a concert at the Kodak Theatre that night.)
