2001: A Space Odyssey

Note from Jobeda: If you've never seen this on the big screen (with big sound!), do not pass over this opportunity; it's a breath-taking experience. Please buy your ticket asap as screenings of 2001 always sell out. Your host Nidhi already has her ticket, so all set.

2001

"2001" is a story of evolution. Sometime in the distant past, someone or something nudged evolution by placing a monolith on Earth (presumably elsewhere throughout the universe as well). Evolution then enabled humankind to reach the moon's surface, where yet another monolith is found, one that signals the monolith placers that humankind has evolved that far. Now a race begins between computers (HAL) and human (Bowman) to reach the monolith placers. The winner will achieve the next step in evolution, whatever that may be.

    Amazing to see on the big screen- especially the psychedelic journey sequence.

    Sorry, lost you guys in the cinema - a real pity as I was looking forward to discussing the movie! Hope the rest of the night was a good one.

    Must read the notes before I go next time. Where were you all- I was front row.
    Perhaps I should have got mobile earlier and found you at the restaurant.
    Amazing to see it full size- especially the trippy bit near the end. I wonder what it looks like on a VR headset?
    Another time.....

    The table will be under my name and we will be leaving by 19:45 to get to the cinema in time. I will be at the cinema entrance from 20:00 until the start of the film at 20:30. If you are not there by then, I'll leave a message at the box office as to where we are seated. See you tomorrow night.
