With 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, director Stanley Kubrick redefined the limits of filmmaking and cemented his legacy as one of the most revolutionary and influential directors of all time. Originally released in 70mm Cinerama roadshow format following the film's world premiere on April 2, 1968, at the Uptown Theater in Washington, D.C., 2001 ignited the imaginations of critics and audiences alike and its impact continues to resonate to this day. Kubrick's dazzling, Academy Award®-winning achievement is a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space and ultimately whisks astronaut David Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted territory, perhaps even into immortality. "Open the pod bay doors, HAL." Let an awesome journey unlike any other begin. DIR/SCR/PROD Stanley Kubrick; SCR Arthur C. Clarke, from his story "The Sentinel." UK/U.S., 1968, color, 142 min. plus one 20-min. intermission. RATED G
