2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY
FRIDAY, AUGUST 25 @ 8:00 PM
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968) - With its ground-breaking special effects, dazzling cinematography and gloriously sublime film score, Stanley Kubrick’s monumental opus changed the way science fiction movies were made - and viewed - forever. From its opening sequence set in a prehistoric African savannah to its final ambiguous scene of a "rebirth" in outer space, this is a film that has excited curiosity and ignited imaginations like no other film before - and, perhaps, since. Fifty years later, Douglas Trumbull's Oscar-winning special effects still stun and awe and Kubrick's masterpiece retains the power to mesmerise and inspire.
Few films make us think about who we are, where we came from, and where we're going...
Few works in cinema can be described as religious experiences...
When viewed in a large-screen movie theatre rather than on your television, 2001 A Space Odyssey is one of them.

MOSCOW ON THE HUDSON
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 @ 8:00 PM
MOSCOW ON THE HUDSON (1984) - Director Paul Mazursky's empathetic tale delivers a hilarious and touching portrait of a shy Russian circus musician who defects to the U.S. and discovers that life in the Free World just might not live up to his expectations. Far from a dated Cold War period piece, the film retains its immediacy and relevance due both to Mazursky's three-dimensional approach to the immigrant experience in America, and to Robin William's star turn as saxophone player Vladimir Ivanoff. Taking on a role which easily could have devolved into a cartoon, the young comedian - fresh from his Mork and Mindy TV success - put in over a year of study of both the Russian language and the saxophone before stepping in front of Mazursky's cameras. The result was a sensitive and stellar performance that demonstrated Williams’ immense range as a dramatic actor and paved the way for the memorable performances he would deliver over the years.
