Kubrick’s spectacular, transcendent epic has been the touchstone for all science fiction cinema since its original 1968 release. Widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made, critic Roger Ebert described Kubrick’s masterpiece as “a stand-alone monument, a great visionary leap, unsurpassed in its vision of man and the universe.” This landmark film returns to cinema screens as part of the Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder season.

Please note: you'll be getting the full Kubrick experience, which includes a 10 second intermission slide halfway through the film (this is not an actual intermission), plus a few minutes of black screen and music at the start and end of the film. The lights in the auditorium will stay down until after the black screen and music, which comes AFTER the end credit sequence.
