U.S, 1968, 160 mins, 35mm, Dir. Stanley Kubrick, Rated PG-13 for mature thematic material
”Stanley Kubrick's venture succeeds as dazzling visual art.” - TIME Magazine
The Secret Celluloid Society presents Stanley Kubrick’s whimsical sci-fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey on dazzling 35mm at the Gables Cinema on Saturday, August 22 at 11:30 pm as part of our midnight After Hours series. Kubrick iconically pushed the limits of narration and special effects toward an interesting take on humanity in an extraterrestrial setting. When imposing black monoliths are discovered, a pertinent race between computers and humankind begins. Kubrik's literary adaptation, based off a short story by revered sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke, provides a feeling of awe, mystery, horror and intrigue. Penelope Gilliat of New Yorker remarks, “Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is some sort of great film, and an unforgettable endeavor. Technically and imaginatively, what he put into it is staggering.”
