2001- A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick on show at Rivoli

  • Article




Over 50 years after being directed and released in theatres, the epic drama on adventure and space exploration "2001- A Space Odyssey", by Stanley Kubrick, takes to the big screen at Municipal Theatre Rivoli.

There are two scheduled sessions, at 6pm and at 9.30pm. This ling film was awarded the Oscar for Best Visual Effects and also gave Kubrick highest praise and bad reviews, as the film was also considered to feature a gloomy vision of "the future" of humankind.

"The screenplay was written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, and was inspired by Clarke's 1951 short story "The Sentinel" and other short stories by Clarke. A novel released after the film's premiere was in part written concurrently with the screenplay. The film, which follows a voyage to Jupiter with the sentient computer HAL after the discovery of an alien monolith affecting human evolution, deals with themes of existentialism, human evolution, technology, artificial intelligence, and the possibility of extra-terrestrial life."
