>>NEW<< *6:15 Meeting time* 2001: A Space Odyssey (The Dome's Last Day)

This will probably be the last movie shown at the Dome theatre before it closes down on the 21st so let's try to catch it!

 

2001: A Space Odyssey

 

 

A mind-bending sci-fi symphony, Stanley Kubrick's landmark 1968 epic pushed the limits of narrative and special effects toward a meditation on technology and humanity. Based on Arthur C. Clarke's story The Sentinel, Kubrick and Clarke's screenplay is structured in four movements. At the "Dawn of Man," a group of hominids encounters a mysterious black monolith alien to their surroundings. To the strains of Strauss's 1896 Also sprach Zarathustra, a hominid invents the first weapon, using a bone to kill prey. As the hominid tosses the bone in the air, Kubrick cuts to a 21st century spacecraft hovering over the Earth, skipping ahead millions of years in technological development. U.S. scientist Dr. Heywood Floyd (William Sylvester) travels to the moon to check out the discovery of a strange object on the moon's surface: a black monolith. As the sun's rays strike the stone, however, it emits a piercing, deafening sound that fills the investigators' headphones and stops them in their path. Cutting ahead 18 months, impassive astronauts David Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) head toward Jupiter on the spaceship Discovery, their only company three hibernating astronauts and the vocal, man-made HAL 9000 computer running the entire ship. When the all-too-human HAL malfunctions, however, he tries to murder the astronauts to cover his error, forcing Bowman to defend himself the only way he can. Free of HAL, and finally informed of the voyage's purpose by a recording from Floyd, Bowman journeys to "Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite," through the psychedelic slit-scan star-gate to an 18th century room, and the completion of the monolith's evolutionary mission.With assistance from special-effects expert Douglas Trumbull, Kubrick spent over two years meticulously creating the most "realistic" depictions of outer space ever seen, greatly advancing cinematic technology for a story expressing grave doubts about technology itself. Despite some initial critical reservations that it was too long and too dull, 2001 became one of the most popular films of 1968, underlining the generation gap between young moviegoers who wanted to see something new and challenging and oldsters who "didn't get it." Provocatively billed as "the ultimate trip," 2001 quickly caught on with a counterculture youth audience open to a contemplative (i.e. chemically enhanced) viewing experience of a film suggesting that the way to enlightenment was to free one's mind of the U.S. military-industrial-technological complex. ~ Lucia Bozzola, Rovi

    Awesome! I loved the audience's high spirits. SAVE THE DOME! Ha ha! I also liked the Intermission. I wish more movies would have an intermission.

    First time seeing it on the big screen. It holds up pretty well for a 45 year old sci-fi epic.

    I really enjoyed the evening because I knew this would probably be the last time I would ever see a movie at the "Dome". I can't say that I was crazy about the movie itself, but I did like the part with Hal.

    There'll be a large group turnout today so be sure to check-in with me when you arrive :) I might be over talking to some friends by the "Save the Dome" table (you can't miss them) so look for me there if I'm not in my usual spot. See you in a few hours & *Rubio's* optional dinner before at ~5pm!!!

    UGh, how sad that I will to be at the dome, for it's final curtain call. I have had a family issue come up. I wish all happy viewing, and farewell to a landmark in PH!

    Anyone want to get dinner before the movie at ~5:15pm-ish? I'll probably get my ticket before dinner. Comment below if you're interested.

    We should probably get back to the Dome early at ~6:30pm in case it fills fast.

      I wouldn't mind meeting up at Rubio's since once the Cinedome is closed I may never go to this shopping center again.

      April 19, 2013

    Lana, Do you know when tickets will go on sale for this? I want to make sure I get one before it's completely sold out.

      You should b e able to get the tickets at the box office. Since the Dome seats 800+ I doubt it'll sell out.
