Exclusive one month engagement of “2001” in Toronto
TORONTO, ONTARIO , CANADA — A special presentation of a cinematic masterpiece presented in breathtaking 70mm format, a most visually spectacular widescreen process!
“A rare and epic experience! This is picture quality you have to see to believe!”
“An epic drama of adventure and exploration!”
A movie you may not understand the first time you see it, so see it again and again!
Worth seeing just for the music!
The brand new TIFF Bell Lightbox, home of the Toronto International Film Festival just opened September 12, 2010. Of the 5 Cinemas, Cinema 1 which seats 549 can show 70mm films and as far as I know 2001 is the first 70mm film.
They say it’s the “only 70mm screening facility in Canada” I take that to mean they plan to be screening 70mm pretty much all the time. I know they plan on “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Playtime” both in 70mm after 2001. Anyone know if they plan to continue this plan?

“The ultimate trip,” Stanley Kubrick’s science-fiction masterpiece has survived innumerable parodies, references and rip-offs with its mystery and power intact. Tracing a cosmic mystery from the dawn of mankind to the farthest reaches of time and space, Kubrick chronicles an intergalactic mission to find the source of a mysterious black monolith discovered by American astronauts on the moon – a mission complicated (to put it mildly) when the ship’s renegade computer HAL 9000 (HAL + 1 letter = IBM) decides that its human cargo is inadequate to carry out such an important task. Featuring spectacular special effects by Douglas Trumbull, 2001 pointedly speculates on what it means to be human in an age dominated by technology, and what the next stage of human evolution could potentially be.
