Science on Screen ~ 2001: A Space Odyssey

Thursday, November 30 at 7:00 PM

“The film creates its effects essentially out of visuals and music. It is meditative. It does not cater to us, but wants to inspire us, enlarge us.”
— Roger Ebert
KPAC presents 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY as part of the Science on Screen® series. The series will feature classic, cult and documentary films with introductions by notable figures from the world of science, technology, and medicine. One of the most influential of all sci-fi films,  Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 is a delicate, poetic meditation on the ingenuity — and folly — of mankind. We are thrilled to kick off this new series with the ultimate science fiction film and the one that has to be seen on the big screen!
How do you find a black hole?
Everyone knows that entering a black hole will definitely you turn you into a Star Child but how do you actually find black holes? Dr. Vivienne Baldassare will address the audience with her research about the quest to identify black holes in our galaxy. Cougs in Space will present their ongoing work in launching a satellite into orbit.

An initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Rated: G | 2 hr 29 min | Tickets: $8 Adult or $5 Child or Film Pass
