Over the past while, we've given you lots of intriguing looks back at Stanley Kubrick's still awe-inspiring "2001: A Space Odyssey." There's been a 3-minute video tribute, a vintage 20-minute making of, and the rare 1970 book about the film, along with 5 Things You Didn't Know. But how about a chance to see the movie on the big screen in 70mm? It's a rare opportunity, but for those of you in New York City, we can make that happen.

Over the past while, we've given you lots of intriguing looks back at Stanley Kubrick's still awe-inspiring "2001: A Space Odyssey." There's been a 3-minute video tribute, a vintage 20-minute making of, and the rare 1970 book about the film, along with 5 Things You Didn't Know. But how about a chance to see the movie on the big screen in 70mm? It's a rare opportunity, but for those of you in New York City, we can make that happen. 

This weekend, the Museum of the Moving Image is kicking off a run of six screenings of Kubrick's classic in 70mm, and it's a very rare opportunity you shouldn't miss. But that's not all, two of the screenings will be a double bill with Douglas Trumbull's "Brainstorm," also on 70mm, making this a pretty terrific outing for sci-fi heads or cinephiles alike. The screening dates are below: 

Dates/times:
Saturday, July 5, 3:00 p.m.
Saturday, July 5, 6:30 p.m.
Sunday, July 6, 3:00 p.m.
Sunday, July 6, 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, July 12, 3:30 p.m. (presented with Douglas Trumbull’s Brainstorm in 70mm at 7:00 p.m.)
*Sunday, July 13, 3:00 p.m. (presented with Douglas Trumbull’s Brainstorm in 70mm at 7:00 p.m.) 

We've got some pairs of tickets for this one, this much should be obvious—you must live in New York City and be able to attend one of the screenings above. With that out of the way, enter for your chance to win by emailing us your name, contact info and the answer to this question: what was the first title announced for the film. Good luck!

Update: Contest is closed, winners will be contacted via email.
