Rochester, N.Y., November 18, 2016 —The George Eastman Museum will present its recently acquired, brand-new 35mm print of the roadshow version of 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), complete with the music meant to be heard before the film’s beginning, during the intermission, and at the end. Writer and director Stanley Kubrick’s visionary sci-fi masterwork will be shown at the museum’s Dryden Theatre on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. The film’s star, Keir Dullea, who played astronaut Dave Bowman, will introduce the film and, after the screening, will share stories and insights about its making. Dullea will also sell and sign photographs before the screening and following the discussion. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.
General admission for the special screening is $25, and tickets can be purchased at eastman.org/2001 beginning on Thursday, December 1, at 9:00 a.m.
As a result of its close working relationship with Warner Bros., the Eastman Museum was offered the opportunity to purchase new 35mm prints of the six films Kubrick made for the studio. With funds specially donated by four of its trustees, the Eastman Museum has acquired 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), A Clockwork Orange (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975), and The Shining (1980). The museum will screen all four titles during 2017.
