$5 Classic Movie Night | Paramount Theatre
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.
