To mark the 50th anniversary of the greatest science fiction film ever made we present a newly restored digital release of Stanley Kubrick’s dazzling, Academy Award winning, compelling science fiction drama of man vs. machine. A stunning meld of music & motion based on Arthur C. Clarke’s short story ‘The Sentinel’. At the dawn of mankind, a tribe of ape-like beings are visited on Earth by a large black monolith. Thousands of years later, in the year 2001, scientist Dr. Heywood Floyd (William Sylvester) discovers a similar black monolith on the moon, which then emits a signal aimed at the planet Jupiter. A year later, astronauts David Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) are en route to Jupiter to investigate the signal’s destination and purpose. However, their mission comes under threat when the ship computer, HAL (voiced by Douglas Rain who was born in Winnipeg), seemingly develops a malfunction.

Reviews

A masterpiece that can still leave you dizzy with wonder. As much as any movie ever made, this visionary science-fiction tale of space travel and first contact with extraterrestrial life is a spellbinding experience.
