$5 Classic Movie Night: “A Space Odyssey” | Paramount Theatre

Friday, August 25, 2017 - 8:00 pm | Cost: $5
Paramount Theatre | 2025 Broadway, Oakland, CA



$5 Classic Movie Night | Paramount Theatre

Experience the great films of Hollywood’s Golden Era in one of America’s finest Art Deco movie palaces.

With over 3,000 seats and a meticulously-restored interior, the Paramount offers a true “Movie Palace” experience straight out of the 1930s – with period newsreels, cartoons, previews, live music from the Mighty Wurlitzer organ and the audience participation spinning wheel game of “Dec-O-Win.”

With its ground-breaking special effects, dazzling cinematography and gloriously sublime film score, Stanley Kubrick’s monumental opus changed the way science fiction movies were made – and viewed – forever.

From its opening sequence set in a prehistoric African savannah to its final ambiguous scene of a “rebirth” in outer space, this is a film that has excited curiosity and ignited imaginations like no other film before – and, perhaps, since.

Fifty years later, Douglas Trumbull’s Oscar-winning special effects still stun and awe and Kubrick’s masterpiece retains the power to mesmerize and inspire.
