Just what do you think you’re doing, Dave? – HAL 9000

Rated G (161 min) 2001 turns 50 this year, and we’re celebrating at the Virginia with a full week of screenings of Stanley Kurbick’s masterpiece on a new 70mm print struck from the original negative, without any digital remastering, effects, or edits. This is as close as you can get to the legendary film’s original 1968 presentation, when it was projected in 70mm on Cinerama screens nationwide.

Find out more about this rare new film print, the movie’s connections to Ebertfest, Champaign-Urbana and The University of Illinois
