“Just what do you think you’re doing, Dave?”
As part of our nod to the 50th Anniversary of the lunar landing (Saturday, July 18), we thought it fitting to celebrate cinema that captures and is inspired by the human desire to learn about and explore space, an infinite marvel one fictional Captain described so aptly as, “the final frontier.” And, let’s be honest – it doesn’t get any better than a big screen viewing of master storyteller Stanley Kubrick‘s monumentally epic 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, beautifully remastered for its own 50th Anniversary in 2018.
Kubrick’s masterpiece, a visionary, cold-war era sci-fi view into a future that has yet to be written – is just as evocative today as it was upon its release in 1968. Widely regarded as one of the most influential films ever made, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is a veritable cinematic Venn diagram with overlapping themes including human evolution, man’s relationship to technology and the implications of artificial intelligence, as well as notions regarding life… beyond terra firma. 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is, unquestionably, the Mother of All Space Movies – and a definite big screen must-see. Minors very welcome in the balcony!
“Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is some sort of great film, and an unforgettable endeavor. Technically and imaginatively, what he put into it is staggering.” (The New Yorker)
