2001 Space Odyssey

The year is 1999, and a four-million-year-old black monolith is discovered on the surface of the moon. The government, hiding the situation from the public, sends a team of scientists (Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, and William Sylvester) to discover what alien life forms could be watching Earth. The race is now on between computer and human to reach the monolith and discover the next stage in evolution.

We will gather on the second floor at the rail overlooking the lobby. Further contact information will be emailed to participants on the day before.

Tampa Bay Times film critic Steve Persall will lead a short discussion of the film immediately after 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. The session is free and open to the public.

Street parking is free on Sundays but you need to give yourself plenty of time to find a space or use a pay lot. You might want to buy your ticket in advance.

Please pay close attention to our contact information and, as always, RSVP responsibly

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert
    Only a few films are transcendent, and work upon our minds and imaginations like music or prayer or a vast belittling landscape...Alone among science-fiction movies, 2001 is not concerned with thrilling us, but with inspiring our awe.

      I am beyond excited to see this on the big screen. I missed out on Dr. Strangelove last summer, but did catch The Shining on the big screen.

      Not to argue but in the hopes of adding to the discourse, I would personally add Andrei Tarkovsky's Solaris and Stalker to Ebert's list.

    Articles about this film in the (online) Encyclopedia Britannica and in Wikipedia convey how important a work of art this is. To be able to see this on a big screen is an opportunity not to be missed unless you are in labor or at death's door.
