Arthur C. Clarke’s 100th Birthday Celebration!

(1968) dir Stanley Kubrick w/Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood [149 min; 35mm]
On the eve of its 50th anniversary next year, we celebrate Arthur C. Clarke’s 100th birthday with a special 35mm screening of this sci-fi classic.

“You can watch 2001 as a visual journey with nary a thought for what’s under the surface or you can plunge into this vortex of interpretations. The great thing about 2001 is that either approach works fine. That’s why it endures.” – Design Thomson, Washington Post

“The film creates its effects essentially out of visuals and music. It is meditative. It does not cater to us, but wants to inspire us, enlarge us.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
