2001: A Space Odyssey To Return To Big Screen

Stanley Kubrick's classic science fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey is to return to cinemas after being digitally restored.

The 1968 movie is regarded by some as one of the greatest ever made.

With a screenplay written by Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke, it tells the story of encounters between humans and black monoliths and a voyage to Jupiter.

On November 28, the British Film Institute will release the remastered Warner Bros version as part of its science fiction film blockbuster season, which starts in October.

In 1991, it was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the United States Library of Congree and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.

The UK-wide release of the Kubrick movie will be a highlight in a wide-ranging programme to be revealed in full by the BFI in July.
