              <p>RETURN TO “2001”. EXPERIENCE. The Ziegfeld Theatre is the only theatre in the country equipped with 6-track stereophonic sound. You will hear “Zarathustra”, “The Blue Danube”, and Gyorgy Ligeti’s electronic compositions from 9 overhead Altec-Lansing speakers and 20 frontal A7 console speakers (4'high,3'wide,3'deep). The screen at the Ziegfeld is 50' across and 24" high (that’s about half a city block long). You will see
              “The Dawn of Man” and “To Jupiter and Beyond” projected from the 70MM Zeiss Ikon Favorit projectors equipped with Xenon lamphouses. RETURN TO “2001”. EXPERIENCE.</p>
