Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey returns to the Wex for the third time in glorious 70mm! This epic fantasia took Arthur C. Clarke’s original sci-fi story—tracing human consciousness from its simian dawn to its first encounters with extraterrestrial intelligence—as the basis for a genuine visual tour de force unlike anything seen in movies before or since. Both slyly comic and truly chilling, it’s also notable for the way its nominal stars (Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood) are utterly upstaged by the selfless, ever-obliging, tragic computer/artificial intelligence HAL. Our previous 70mm screenings sold out in advance, so get your tickets early. (141 mins., 70mm)
