THE ASTOR REVIEW

Kubrick’s milestone masterpiece with many underlying, profound themes embodied under a science-fiction plot. 2001 traces our evolution from the leap out of the animal kingdom by the instilling of intelligence, to our ultimate fate confronting our destiny with the unknown. Magnificent use of the film medium. Co-scripted by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke (based on his short story “The Sentinel”). The Astor presents 2001 in 70mm Print Format – the way Kubrick intended it to be seen, complete with overture and intermission fully intact. Given The Astor is one of the last film houses able to screen 70mm prints, this is a major cause of excitement for any movie fan, as it is akin to seeing a piece of fine art on a gallery wall – this is the canvas it was meant to be experienced with. No high def digital format comes close to the richness, depth and clarity of seeing it in this lush film format. Not to be missed.

IMDB SYNOPSIS

2001 is a story of evolution. Sometime in the distant past, someone or something nudged evolution by placing a monolith on Earth (presumably elsewhere throughout the universe as well). Evolution then enabled humankind to reach the moon's surface, where yet another monolith is found, one that signals the monolith placers that humankind has evolved that far. Now a race begins between computers (HAL) and human (Bowman) to reach the monolith placers. The winner will achieve the next step in evolution, whatever that may be.
