Film Preview: 2001: A Space Odyssey in 70mm, 29 March, Filmhouse, Edinburgh

23 Feb

A head’s up for fans of Stanley Kubrick, science fiction, computer’s called HAL and those who like to see films the way they were meant to be seen: Edinburgh’s Filmhouse cinema will be screening a stunning 70mm print of 2001: A Space Odyssey on Sunday 29 March at 8.15pm.

From the Filmhouse website:

“Filmhouse proudly presents Kubrick’s groundbreaking classic 2001: A Space Odyssey, screening from a magnificent 70mm print on Sunday 29th March at 8.15pm only. Take this unique opportunity to see probably the most influential science-fiction film of the 60’s from high-resolution film gauge. The vast majority of cinemas are unable to handle 70mm film, and so films originally shot in 70mm are usually shown from 35mm prints. Filmhouse, however, is equipped with this rare technology.

“To highlight the difference from usual 35mm prints, the 70mm format offers an enthralling experience especially because of the larger image area on each frame of 70mm film which provides clearer, sharper, and steadier images as well as a deeper perspective on screen and thus a more dramatic impact. There is no better film to experience all these advantages of 70mm!”

There’s more up on the Filmhouse website.
