Brand new 70mm DTS print!

Director Stanley Kubrick spent four years makng 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, drowning himself in sci-fi films and novels while developing the script with Arthur C. Clarke, though the finished product removes much of the dialog. Nearly all of the special effects shots were done in camera, eliminating the need for blue screen, matte, and optical shots. Shot in Super Panavision, 2001 is the perfect introduction to the 70mm format and the experience of seeing films with an audience.

To honor our commitment to film projection, the Music Box is very pleased to have commissioned a brand new 70mm DTS print of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY from Warner Brothers, produced at Fotokem, the last full service 65/70mm lab in the United States. We've often hyped rare film screenings as the last ever time a print may screen, but we're very happy to say we can guarantee 2001 will have a home in 70mm in Chicago for the forseeable future. See it for the first time, or the thirtieth!
