2001: A Space Odyssey 2.2:1 35mm Anamorphic Print

In a slight departure from the norm, MGM produced 35mm anamorphic prints of 2001: A Space Odyssey masked down to the same aspect ratio as the 70mm original. That thin black line to the left of the image shows just how much narrower a 2.2:1 frame is than a 2.35:1 frame. Keir Dullea is seen blowing smoke rings.
The film carries a credit stating "In Technicolor® and Metrocolor". Can you tell which lab printed this piece of film?
