SPECIAL EVENT IMAX PRESENTATION - TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this ground-breaking classic, 2001: A Space Odyssey has been digitally remastered in the IMAX format for the first time. This strictly limited IMAX special event presentation is not to be missed on the world's largest screen.

In Stanley Kubrick's seminal Academy Award winning sci-Fi drama (an adaptation of a short story The Sentinel by revered sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke), an imposing black monolith structure provides a connection between the past and the future.  

When Dr. David Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) are sent on a mysterious mission to Jupiter to investigate the destination and purpose of a signal emanating from the monolith2001: A, their ship's computer system, HAL (voiced by Douglas Rain), begins to display increasingly strange behaviour, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time.

The IMAX release of 2001: A Space Odyssey will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
