YES! I live in the UK and 2001 is my all-time favourite film, so I cannot wait to watch this on the big screen. It's the perfect film to watch in the cinemas!

Since it will use a WB transfer it probably is the same master.

Wonder if this film would lend itself to a 3D conversion? (Just a thought, given the success of Gravity).

Everyone owes it to themselves to see this movie screened at least once in 70mm in a decent theater. 2001 is always
screening in Los Angeles, either at The Cinerama Dome, the Egyptian or the Chinese theater. As far as a 3D conversion, god!, I hope not, the Kubrick Estate would never allow it.

Just watched "room 237".....wow--- Kubrick was such a beautiful nut job ... Collecting all his inventory now!
Learned things I never knew about this master and can't wait to rewatch his catalog , looking at things with eyes wide and a new reverence for his maticulous brand of genius.... If u haven't seen the doc primarily about the making of the shining I highly recommend it.... Is Stanley kubricks boxes any good? Want to see this too

I was fortunate enough to see this first run on a Cinerama screen. It was a reserved seat road show presentation. The "usherettes" were dressed like the stewardesses in the movie. Still have the program book they were selling. I went back to see it five or six times. I've had the film on VHS, laserdisc (twice), DVD (twice), and BD. It finally looks decent! It really deserves a digi-book...or something special. Instead, they do a giant "collector's edition" of The Nutty Professor. :/
