2001: A Space Odyssey may be the most epic movie of all time, a dated but romantic vision of the future directed by the great Stanley Kubrick in 1968. Signs of extraterrestrial intelligence are discovered, and astronauts are sent on a secret mission to scope out the situation. The whole of humanity may balance on what they find. See it Thursday at the Avon Theatre, in all its visionary, psychedelic glory.
