Cleveland-Born Actor Keir Dullea Comes to Cinematheque

The Cinematheque presents actor Keir Dullea alongside his most famous film, the sci-fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Cleveland-Born Actor Keir Dullea Comes to Cinematheque

Keir Dullea, the Cleveland-born actor best known for playing astronaut David Bowman in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, is coming to the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque on Saturday, July 16 to answer audience questions after an 8:15pm screening of that 1968 sci-fi classic. He will also answer questions after a 5:30pm screening of another of his most memorable films, Frank Perry’s David and Lisa, from 1962.

On July 16 special admission prices/policies will be in effect: $10 general admission; members and CIA I.D. holders $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners. On July 17 regular prices/policies will apply. Advance tickets for the July 16 show of 2001: A Space Odyssey can be purchased online here.

Two other films starring Dullea, Bob Clark’s Black Christmas (1974) and Otto Preminger’s Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965), will surround the July 16 screenings, comprising a “Keir Dullea Weekend” (July 14–17).

Born in Cleveland in 1936, Dullea, with his boyish good looks and piercing blue eyes, became one of the most sought-after actors of the 1960s. He started acting on TV and the stage and made his screen debut as a juvenile delinquent in The Hoodlum Priest (1961). He continued playing emotionally troubled young people—and often characters younger than himself—in films throughout the decade (David and Lisa, The Thin Red Line, Bunny Lake Is Missing), culminating in his best-known movie role in 2001: A Space Odyssey. During the sixties he also made his Broadway debut, and starred as a young blind man in the hit comedy-drama Butterflies Are Free, which co-starred Blythe Danner. Dullea has been primarily a stage actor since the late 1960s, but he continues to turn up occasionally in movies and on TV.

The “Keir Dullea Weekend” schedule is below. All films will show in the Aitken Auditorium of the Cleveland Institute of Art, 11141 East Boulevard in University Circle, cia.edu/cinematheque. Free parking for filmgoers in available in the adjacent CIA lot. For further information, call John Ewing or Tim Harry at 216.421.7450.
