4K Digital Restoration
Fifty years ago, the epic sci-fi drama 2001: A Space Odyssey transformed filmmaking forever, with its awe-inspiring special effects and captivating storytelling. Now, Stanley Kubrick’s outer space masterpiece will appear bigger and better than ever as The Rangos Giant Cinema presents the film’s new restoration, which was supervised by critically-acclaimed director Christopher Nolan, in stunning 4K resolution.
Upon its release in 1968, 2001: A Space Odyssey broke the mold and invented the entire sci-fi blockbuster genre, influencing an entire generation of master filmmakers, including Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, and Steven Spielberg. In the film, humanity finds a mysterious, obviously artificial object buried beneath the Lunar surface and, with the intelligent computer HAL 9000, sets off on a quest.
Experience 2001: A Space Odyssey on Pittsburgh’s largest screen in stunning 4K digital resolution with premium multichannel surround sound. For cinema lovers and sci-fi fans, The Rangos Giant Cinema is the best theater in all of western Pennsylvania to see this groundbreaking film.
By virtue of the technology, colorful and comfortable architecture, and atmosphere of the new cinema, The Rangos is designed to be a destination that provides immersive and exciting experiences to our guests.
