I am so happy. As some of you may know the once interesting director Christopher Nolan is responsible for a reissue, on 70mm film, of 2001: A Space Odyssey. It was released this month in select theaters in the US. One of the theaters was Arclight's Cinerama Dome in LA which had only two showings. By the time I got wind of this all that was left were seats like in the front right corner of the theater.
Today, after seeing a feature on the film on CBS, Sunday Morning, I thought I'd check to see if they had added some showings. Sure enough there's about 16 shows added in June. Most of the best seats were already snagged. However, for Saturday night I was able to take almost the entire row M (all but one seat.) Row M the absolute best row in the Dome.
I originally saw the movie, when it opened, at the Cinestage Cinerama theater in Chicago in 1968 eight times. It's been 50 years. I am very excited.
