The British Film Institute has announced that it will re-release theatrically director Stanley Kubrick's classic film 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). The film will open in theaters across the United Kingdom on November 28th, as part of the BFI's 2014 Science Fiction blockbuster project.
The BFI's Science Fiction Film blockbuster will be presented over three months (October - December 2014) with a historical and thematic exploration of the best of this perennially popular and visionary genre. The UK-wide release of 2001: A Space Odyssey, which will use a digital transfer provided by Warner Brothers, will be a highlight in a wide-ranging program to be revealed in full in July.
Note: 2001: A Space Odyssey is already available on Blu-ray in the United Kingdom and the United States. You can see our listings of these releases here and here.
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. :/
