Our friendly neighborhood museum, the Museum of the Moving Image, just announced they will be opening a brand new, extensive exhibition on iconic filmmaker Stanley Kubrick in January 2020. The exhibit will focus on 2001: A Space Odyssey, his 1968 film that was a technological trailblazer in terms of both its subject matter and special effects capabilities.

MoMI is the first North American museum to present this exhibition. While it will shed light on Kubrick’s influences and intense research process, it will also explore how much the film affected not only cinema but architecture, design and advertising.

Original artifacts from international collections and the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts London will be on display—including costumes like the space suit worn in the Clavius Base scene and Moonwatcher ape suit worn by Dan Richter in the Dawn of Man scene. From its own collection, MoMI will share concept sketches for Clavius Base from Special Photographic Effects Supervisor Douglas Trumbull.

If you can’t wait until January, get to the museum for special screenings of 2001: A Space Odyssey now through Sunday on 70mm (a special widescreen that offers astonishing detail and vibrancy). It will air Thursday, Aug 1 and Friday, Aug 2 at 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for non-members.

The exhibit will officially open January 18, 2020.
