Description2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM, 1968). Fine/Very Fine. Cinerama Lenticular Poster (23.25" X 33").
Lenticular posters were a rarity in the 1960s, and Heritage has only offered a scarce few from Kubrick's futuristic blockbuster. The picture had an extensive ad campaign full of creative advertisements and unique formats, but this innovative lenticular must be among the most impressive of them all. Used specifically for Cinerama screenings of the film, the space station in the image rotates with additional movement seen in the Pan Am Clipper and even in the starry background. The illustration itself is modeled after the exquisite Robert McCall artwork found on the Style A one sheets, an iconic image for the productions original ad campaign. Not seen in one of our auctions in nearly a decade, this poster has slight edge wear, some surface scuffs and scratches, small stains, and blemishes near the edges. The poster has a sticker on the verso in the top right corner. Chances to own such a rare piece as this are few and far between, making the poster an acquisition most collectors could only dream about!
Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
