^ I am so sorry to hear about your loss, Redfern
I saw 2001
in the theater when I was a kid, but it didn't become my favorite movie of all time until I started buying it for home (I distinctly remember owning at least three different laserdisc pressings of it
Unfortunately, I never got the chance to see 2001
in Cinerama. We used to have a Cinerama theater in Omaha
but it was demolished several years ago. Even then it had been years since it ever showed anything in Cinerama... I'm sure it did show 2001
that way, but that was probably before I was born.
