The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.
Stanley Kubrick's landmark science fiction film is still considered one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time. The Design Museum, London have an exhibition on Kubrick's work - Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition which runs until the 15th September.
This poster was designed for the film's Cinerama release, which was only shown in cinemas which were able to screen this format, which was relatively a small number of cinemas. As a result this poster was printed in smaller quantities to the main release posters.
