Our feature movie of the Moonlight Bush Cinema at Esoteric celebrates 50 years since the release of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey which literally shaped the Sci-Fi genre as we know it today. This is an absolute must see for all Sci-Fi fans and best of all we’re going to screen it after all stages are switched off on Monday so that everyone can enjoy this masterpiece by the legend that is Stanley Kubrick.
With 2001: A Space Odyssey, director Stanley Kubrick redefined the limits of filmmaking in this classic science fiction masterpiece; a contemplation on the nature of humanity.
2001: A Space Odyssey spans from the dawn of man to its title year. Stone Age Earth: In the presence of a mysterious black obelisk, pre-humans discover the use of tools — and weapons — violently taking first steps toward intelligence. 1999: On Earth’s moon astronauts uncover another mysterious black obelisk. 2001: Between Earth and Jupiter, the spacecraft’s intelligent computer makes a mistake that kills most of the human crew — then continues to kill to hide its error. Beyond Time: The sole survivor of the journey to Jupiter ascends to the next level of humanity.
Based on the short story The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clarke, 2001: A Space Odyssey showed the way for all other special effects-laden films that followed.
