"SEE IT BIG!" 70MM Series @ Museum of the Moving Image, New York, USA
August 20 – September 10, 2021

Museum of the Moving Image will present its popular summer series See It Big! 70mm, featuring four classic and contemporary films that will be projected in 70mm in the Museum’s majestic Sumner M. Redstone Theater, August 20 through September 10. The series opens on August 20, with the perennial favorite Stanley Kubrick’s "2OO1: A Space Odyssey", a film that partly inspired the architectural design of the Museum’s Redstone Theater

With a higher resolution and more light hitting the frame, 70mm film offers a bigger, brighter image than 35mm. It also offers richer sound, with more space on the soundtrack. It is the ideal film format for ambitious cinematic spectacles, yet with the transition to digital filmmaking, 70mm movies have become increasingly rare. Filmmakers like Christopher Nolan are keeping the tradition alive, as his Tenet recently proved. In this selection of rare 70mm screenings, we're also pleased to present big-screen epics from Stanley Kubrick and David Lean.

All screenings take place in the Sumner M. Redstone Theater at Museum of the Moving Image, 36-01 35 Avenue in Astoria, New York.
