MGM Original U.S. Cinerama One-Sheet (27x41) Linen Backed Very Good Condition $2150.00

This is an original roadshow MGM/CINERAMA One Sheet Poster (27x41) 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 "The Sentinel," the film is essentially a story about evolution. Sometime in the distant past, "something" 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 "deliberately buried" 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 today's standards. Kubrick's 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 onesheet poster with artwork by Robert "Bob" McCall is linen-backed and we have graded in very good plus to fine condition. There is some touch-up along the fold lines and modest signs of some restoration. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic Cinerama one-sheet for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
