“Just what do you think you’re doing, Dave?”
We couldn’t think of a more fitting film to be our final film showing of 2018 than one of the best from one of the best – and it doesn’t get any better than a big screen viewing of master storyteller Stanley Kubrick‘s monumentally epic 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
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)
