2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY

Synopsis:

Saturday, February 21 – 7:30 PM


70mm Print!

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, 1968, Warner Bros., 139 min. Arthur C. Clarke was the author of more than 100 fiction and nonfiction books. He achieved his greatest fame in 1968 when his short story The Sentinel was turned into 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Director Stanley Kubrick’s mind-blowing meditation on the dangers (and wonders) of technology, the limitless vistas of space, and the future of the human race itself is one of the Cinematheque’s most requested movie titles. This is another opportunity to see one of the essential cinema experiences on the giant screen, in truly psychedelic 6-track stereo sound! Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood are two astronauts on a deep space probe who faithfully rely on onboard computer HAL to navigate and overcome any problems. But then the unthinkable happens -- HAL develops a paranoid "personality." "I have had a diverse career as a writer, underwater explorer and space promoter. Of all these, I would like to be remembered as a writer." Arthur C. Clarke.
