2001: A Space Odyssey







In this special co-presentation with the U-M College of Engineering, UMS presents a free, general admission, multi-media community event in Hill Auditorium of Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey, with live orchestral and choral accompaniment.

Long recognized as one of the greatest science fiction works of all time, 2001: A Space Odyssey is celebrated for its technological realism, its innovative special effects, and its bold use of music. The film brought worldwide fame to both Richard Strauss’s Also Sprach Zarathustra and the music of György Ligeti. It also created one of cinema’s most memorable images, of a spaceship floating serenely through space to the strains of Johann Strauss’s waltz The Blue Danube.

This event is free, with priority given to those with free general admission tickets. Please register for your free tickets at ums.org/2001. You’ll receive updates about this event and the activities surrounding it. Seating will be first-come, first-served; additional details will be available in early September.
