To celebrate its 50th birthday, join us for Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi masterpiece. Humanity finds a mysterious, obviously artificial object buried beneath the Lunar surface and, with the intelligent computer HAL 9000, sets off on a quest.
“Revisiting 2001: A Space Odyssey on its 50th anniversary is a real trip. An unforgettable cinematic experience, Stanley Kubrick's film is a work of great scale and operatic proportions. Creation. The Universe. Man. The Circle of Life. Stanley Kubrick makes statements with scenarios, leaving us to fill in the gaps and make our own conclusions. It is an enthralling marriage of music, imagery, sound and philosophy.
Pretentious or brilliant? The screenplay by Kubrick and science writer and futurist Arthur C. Clarke canvasses many issues. The dawn of man; primates obsessed by technology; existentialism; space travel; artificial intelligence; evolution. Whatever your view, one thing is certain, this is a bold, unique vision: a work of art that embraces and stimulates the mind and the senses.” Urban Cinefile
