Introduced by artist Joseph Havel, director of the Glassell School of Art

New digital restoration! Stanley Kubrick’s science-fiction masterpiece traces a cosmic mystery from the dawn of mankind to the farthest reaches of time and space. 2001 chronicles an intergalactic mission to find the origin of a black monolith discovered by American astronauts on the moon—a mission complicated when the ship’s renegade computer decides its human cargo is inadequate to carry out such an important task. Astronauts Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) must outwit the omniscient machine to survive.

“I tried to create a visual experience, one that bypasses verbalized pigeonholing and directly penetrates the subconscious. . . . In 2001 the message IS the medium. I intended the film to be an intensely subjective experience.” —Stanley Kubrick
