Enjoy a chance to see Stanley Kubrick’s brilliant sci-fi masterpiece on the big screen to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Open the pod bay doors, HAL! Stanley Kubrick’s hugely influential sci-fi masterpiece about time, space, evolution, technology and everything in between returns to its rightful home – the big screen – to celebrate its 50th anniversary. This poetic meditation on both the folly and ingenuity of mankind has enraptured and mystified audiences for half a century, with the legendary psychedelic stargate sequence a particularly mind-blowing highlight.
(1968 UK / USA 134 mins)
Awesome, influential, mind-blowing, cool, obsessional, pretentious – 2001 is all of these. That it is both great and gobbledygook is still fascinating … What 2001 lacks in warmth it makes up for in ideas, style and no end of gobsmackage. Moreover the film boasts a prodigious power to provoke argument – is it profundity personified or plain old pap? Wherever you sit in the debate, movies were born for experiences like this. Angie Errigo, Empire
