Epic! at Derby QUAD – Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey
Monkey. Bone. Spaceship. Monolith. HAL. ‘Close the pod bay doors.’ Beyond the infinite.
It’s fair to say that Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is ingrained in our culture in a way that most movies can only dream of.
Not only is it the highlight of the current BFI ‘Days of Fear and Wonder’ season, and a landmark in cinema science-fiction that remains a touchstone to this day, as Interstellar proved. It’s also one of the definitive epic movies, and as such it’s been at the top of my list for some time to screen at Derby QUAD as part of my regular Epic! strand of films you must see on the big screen.
So I’m delighted to be introducing the film on Sunday 7th December, in the film of an extended run of this immortal, inspirational film. Book a ticket, and I’ll see you there.
