On Friday 5th September The Prince Charles will be screening Stanley Kubrick's seminal scifi epic, 2001: A Space Odyssey, from an original 35mm print. This will probably be the last time that the cinema, always a champion of screening from film prints as opposed to digital, will be putting on this movie in this format. Later this year the film will be reissued in a new digital re-release.
s the PCC explains:
"This past 2 years we have only been given able to screen the film from DCP, but the lovely folks over at Warner Bros. Pictures have granted us permission (with thanks to Hollywood Classics) to use their 35mm print one last time before the film is digitally re-released around the country a little later in the year.
This may be the last time we are given permission to do this, so if you want to see this absolute classic on 35mm one last time at the PCC then be sure to get yourself down here in September."
