Science fiction is the most spectacular of film genres, immersing us in fully imagined futuristic worlds. The See It Big! sci-fi series concludes in spectacular fashion with ultra-rare 70mm screenings of Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey and special-effects genius Douglas Trumbull’s most ambitious film as director, Brainstorm. This weekend’s screenings include Godzilla (the original), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), and two by James Cameron.
See It Big! is an ongoing series organized by Museum of the Moving Image Chief Curator David Schwartz, and Assistant Film Curator Aliza Ma and Reverse Shot editors Michael Koresky and yours truly.
