Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece "2001: A Space Odyssey" was released in 1968, which means it is 50-years-ageless in 2018. Somehow, it still looks and feels fresh. That's vision.
Warner Bros. is continuing the 50th anniversary celebrations by releasing the film in IMAX for the very first time -- which is actually amazing, when you think about it.
Thankfully, this release won't just be in a handful of theaters (unlike "The Dark Knight"). Instead, "2001" will be featured in more than 350 IMAX theaters across North America, but for one week only, beginning August 24. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 3.
This IMAX release follows the release of the "unrestored" 70mm "2001: A Space Odyssey," overseen by the great Christopher Nolan.
While the IMAX release is going wide, only four select theaters will be showcasing the movie on IMAX 70mm film: AMC Universal Citywalk IMAX, Universal City; AMC Lincoln Square IMAX, New York City; AMC Metreon IMAX, San Francisco; and Ontario Place Cinesphere IMAX, Toronto.
