Who would have thought when Stanley Kubrick released his iconic film 2001: A Space Odyssey in 1968 that the prescient director wasn’t merely releasing a sci-fi thriller but also an alarming look into the future and the dangers of technology? Adapted from Arthur C. Clarke’s short story “The Sentinel,” the film received accolades for its pioneering special effects, soundtrack, and set design. Now you can see it on the big screen today and Friday as a part of BAM’s Sci-fi Thanksgiving series, which also includes Andrey Tarkovskiy’s Solaris (1972) on Saturday and Sunday.
