  • Running time150 minutes
  • DirectorStanley Kubrick
  • CastLeonard Rossiter, Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood

Confirming that art and commerce can co-exist, 2001: A Space Odyssey was the biggest box-office hit of 1968. It remains, arguably, the greatest science fiction film ever made and is among the most revolutionary, challenging and debated works of the 20th century 

With a screenplay co-written by Arthur C. Clarke, the film is one of the most perfect examples of the genre and continues to influence filmmakers, artists and writers. The use of pioneering special effects, as well as provocatively ambiguous imagery and sound in place of traditional narrative techniques, makes 2001 one of the more unusual and abstract popular scifi movies. It’s focus on scientific realism and fictional future technologies, proved to be shockingly prescient and earnt Kubrick much praise, especially for his ‘perfect’ AI computer HAL 9000, as well as his accurate portrayal of spaceflight and vacuum.

Don’t miss this chance to see 2001: A Space Odyssey on the big screen as part of the events programme for Science Fiction: New Death.
