Runtime: 2 hours, 41 minutes
Showing at The Franklin Institute October 19 to November 25!
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s science fiction masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey,” you can experience the film at The Franklin Institute’s Tuttleman IMAX® Theater. 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 Franklin Institute is one of only seven theaters worldwide to be playing the IMAX film version, in 15/70mm format.
The IMAX® 70mm film print, shown only in seven IMAX locations, including The Franklin Institute, was created from the recently released “unrestored” 70mm print—a true photochemical film recreation struck from new printing elements made from the original camera negative with no digital tricks, remastered effects, or revisionist edits. This process was overseen by acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, a lifelong admirer of Kubrick.
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.
