Today, we return to the world of Stanley Kubrick to experience 2001: A Space Odyssey in 70mm glory. We are joined by a panel of guests including regular Allee Ellingsburg, Scott Keever, and Richard Brantley. Almost everyone had seen the film before but this was the first time most had seen it in a theater. Few other movies are as transformed by sitting in a movie theater as 2001. We talk about a lot of things but one thing we didn’t record is a pre-movie segment. We just dive right into the film on this one so if you are used to listening to our opening segment and then watching the movie, look out! Spoilers are right out of the gate!
Next up, we are going to shift gears and watch Stop Making Sense.
