2001: A Space Odyssey in 70MM
Adapting Arthur C. Clarke's science fiction short story "The Sentinel", director Stanley Kubrick expanded the scope of the work from a brief inquiry into the existence of life in the universe to a meditation about the development and advancement of intelligence. Beginning with the moment when apes begin cognitive thought and jumping to early lunar exploration, continuing with a manned journey to Jupiter and the development and understanding of non-linear time, 2001: A Space Odyssey tackles some of the most essential topics of humanity and nature.
In a nod to both the Coolidge's long track record of showcasing innovative, boundary-pushing works of film art as well as the start of construction on our expanded space, the theme of this year’s Big Screen Classics series will be Groundbreaking Films! We look forward to sharing more information about our expansion project throughout the year and hope you will join us for one or more of this year's Big Screen Classics the way they were meant to be seen -- on the big screen!
