A spinning space station. A mysterious black monolith. And a cinematic adventure that spans all of time and space: from the dawn of humanity to a future beyond the imagination. Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 – A Space Odyssey is one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time, and its breathtaking visual images are matched by an inspired all-classical soundtrack that ranges from Richard Strauss to György Ligeti. On the big screen, it looks stunning – but with the full Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and the National Chorus of Korea performing the soundtrack live, it’ll sound out of this world! Join us, as we lift your experience of 2001 – A Space Odyssey into a new dimension.
* Presented in association with Warner Bros., Southbank Centre London and the British Film Institute.
