The Science Museum is offering IanVisits readers two pairs of tickets to their IMAX screenings of Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey”, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Kubrick’s groundbreaking 1968 epic.

This is the first time that the 70mm IMAX print is being screened in the UK.

Widely considered among the greatest films of the 20th century, “2001: A Space Odyssey” was released in 70mm Cinerama roadshow format on April 4, 1968. The film was directed and produced by Kubrick from a screenplay he co-wrote with legendary science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, and stars Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood.

The Science Museum screening comes on the heels of the widely successful “unrestored” 70mm film release of “2001: A Space Odyssey,” which was overseen by filmmaker Christopher Nolan, a lifelong admirer of Kubrick.

In keeping with the original 1968 release, all IMAX screenings will feature a brief interval. Visitors are also welcome and indeed encouraged to come to the screenings in 1960s dress.

Tickets are now on general sale, with both day and evening screenings from 1st to 24th November, and can be booked here.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
