MGM-CINERAMA Lobby Display Card (13x19) Very Fine

Original MGM / CINERAMA lobby display card for the Stanley Kubrick sci-fi masterpiece, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968) starring Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, and William Sylvester. Based on the Arthur C. Clarke story called ÒThe Sentinel,Ó the film is essentially a story about evolution. Sometime in the distant past, ÒsomethingÓ nudged evolution by placing a monolith on earth that imparts the knowledge of tool use to early humanoids. Evolution then enables mankind to reach the moon, where yet another monolith is Òdeliberately buriedÓ and emits a signal aimed at Jupiter. Then, six astronauts (four in hibernation) and a very sophisticated computer embark on a journey to Jupiter in hopes of finding the source. The pace is slow with incredible attention to detail, which very realistically envisions the future of technology. The special effects that were pioneered for this film are still breathtaking by todayÕs standards. KubrickÕs use of a classical music score creates a haunting atmosphere of awe, mystery, and intrigue. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Director for Kubrick and Best Screenplay for Clarke and Kubrick. Kubrick did win the Oscar for Best Special Visual Effects. This original 70mm Roadshow Cinerama lobby display card features different art from most of the other material on the film. Very fine condition.11515
