2001: A Space Odyssey at the Egyptian Theatre

Thursday, May 19 at 7:30pm, the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood (6712 Hollywood Blvd. Hollywood, CA 90028) will be showing Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. This bizarre tale about technology gone wrong was so far ahead of its time, but it's so fascinating to watch. I personally have a hard time revisiting this movie because of the way it faces human existence and our future, but there's no denying that Kubrick's work is a masterpiece. The opening sequence alone is worth watching on a big screen.

If you've seen this movie before, you know that Hal is one spooky computer, and now you can see it all in 70mm. General admission is $11, $9 for seniors and students. Or go ahead and buy a membership and get tickets for $7. The Egyptian shows great movies that we all love, and the membership applies to the wonderful Aero Theatre in Santa Monica too. Check out the movie, and then maybe explain that opening sequence to me. I mean, seriously. What the heck.
