The film that defined science fiction was released over 50 years ago but it still packs a wallop.

In honor of the film’s 50th anniversary, Kubrick’s long-time personal assistant, Leon Vitali, whom Cornell Cinema recently honored with a film series, oversaw a painstaking 4K digital restoration of the film, and the results are “almost impossibly spectacular” according to a review in Forbes.

"With music and mind-blowing visuals, Stanley Kubrick created a wildly popular avant-garde film that asked all of the biggest questions--without venturing any easy answers.” (salon.com)
