(1968, UK/US) Director: Stanley Kubrick. Screenplay by Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, inspired by a story by Arthur C. Clarke. Cast: Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester, Douglas Rain.

In what looks to be the film event of the fall, Cinestudio presents a weeklong presentation of Stanley Kubrick’s visionary movie, projected in 70mm film! Order your tickets early for a rare chance to see one of critics’ Top Ten films, that set the standard for any futuristic movie that followed. Only Kubrick had the audacity to begin and end his movie with 20 dialogue-free minutes – as hominids discover a mysterious monolith, and as the sole surviving astronaut on a mission to Jupiter (Keir Dullea) takes a journey to the infinite. The genius of 2001 is everywhere: its use of classical music, its amazing (non CGI) FX, its sentient computer operating system (HAL), and its ability to make space as absolutely terrifying as it is beautiful. 160 minutes.

“Watching a Kubrick film like 2001 is like gazing up at a mountaintop. You look up and wonder, how could anyone have climbed that high?” – Martin Scorsese
