’2001: A Space Odyssey’ at 50: Circle Cinema screens sci-fi classic, panel discusses impact

October 3, 2018

A 50th anniversary screening of “2001: A Space Odyssey” is set for Oct. 14 at Circle Cinema, presented in conjunction with the Oklahoma Film Critics Circle.

The screening will begin at 2 p.m. on Nov. 20 at Circle Cinema, 10 S. Lewis Ave., and it will feature a post-film panel talk among Oklahoma Film Critics Circle members including Jeff Huston and Michael Smith.

Producer-director Stanley Kubrick’s epic science-fiction film, which he co-wrote with Arthur C. Clarke (who wrote the novel), was released in 1968.

It will be screened by Circle Cinema on 35mm reel-to-reel projection in an “unrestored” print made from the original negative.

In 1991, “2001: A Space Odyssey” was voted into the National Film Registry. The American Film Institute has voted it the No. 15 movie of all time and the No. 1 sci-fi film.

Tickets are available at circlecinema.com. More information can be found on the Circle’s Facebook page.
