Disconnect Hal Midnights at The Tivoli this Weekend – 2001: A Space Odyssey

23 April 2017 6:58 PM, PDT

“Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.”

2001: A Space Odyssey plays midnights this weekend (April 28th and 29th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of the Reel late at The Tivoli Midnight series.

1968 was a watershed year in American history and cinema. Director Stanley Kubrick and writer Arthur C. Clarke combined their geniuses to create 2001: A Space Odyssey, a film that takes humans from the dawn of evolution to the edge of space and time. I saw this movie for the first time at the Esquire Theater on Clayton Road in a 1976 re-release. It was actually on one of their upstairs screens, a tight area that served as a balcony in that theater’s first decades. 2001: A Space Odyssey left this 14-year old dazed and confused – and I still am to this day.

The special effects, even by today’s standards are impressive even though »
