Sci-Fi Sundays 2001: A Space Odyssey & Special Event

An imposing black structure provides a connection between the past and the future in this enigmatic adaptation of a short story by revered sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke. When Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship’s computer system, HAL, begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time.

Join us at 5:50 pm for a special pre-screening program! Released just months before the Apollo 11 moon landing, 2001 A Space Odyssey helped shape the public perception of space travel. One-hour before the screening, ticket holders are invited to the Apollo to the Moon gallery on the Museum’s second floor to enjoy free light refreshments and a cash bar. Learn more about this enduring film while touring one of the Museum’s most iconic exhibitions. Program begins at 5:50 pm and will end when the screening begins at 6:50 pm.
