‘2001’ returns to theaters

New 70mm version to bow Oct. 5

A digitally restored print of “2001: A Space Odyssey” will be released in theaters for a limited 70mm run, Warner Bros. said Wednesday.

Seattle’s Cinerama will start screenings of the digitally restored Stanley Kubrick classic Oct. 5, with December dates set for L.A.’s Egyptian Theater, San Francisco’s Castro and the Uptown in Washington, D.C.

Warners had intended for the new version to unspool in the first quarter of this year, but that plan was delayed due to a marketplace crowded with strong 2000 carryovers such as “Cast Away” and “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.”

The studio also had planned a December 2000 release of the film (in 35mm) at L.A.’s Nuart Theater. However, much to the confusion of the Nuart, which had already printed up calendars with the screening dates, Warners yanked the film at the last minute.

This time around, Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater got the gig, because the Nuart cannot accommodate 70mm prints.

The restored print of “2001” also was made available on DVD this summer as part of the boxed set of Kubrick’s films.
