50 years ago, one movie changed all movies forever.

Don’t miss the Cincinnati Art Museum’s (953 Eden Park Dr. Cincinnati) installment of Moving Images this Thursday Jan 3 at 7 p.m., with 2001: A Space Odyssey. This viewing is FREE and open to the public!

Celebrate 2019 – the 50th anniversary of NASA’s moon landing – with this screening of Kubrick’s dazzling science fiction drama.

A space-opera spanning the dawn of man to humanity reaching the stars, 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) tells the story of the Black Monolith, humanity’s evolution and the rise of A.I.’s ultimate supercomputer HAL 9000.

Moving Images is a film series that occurs on the first Thursday of every month. Cincinnati Art Museum curators host screenings of new and classic films that are in dialogue with art. These include documentaries about artists or art-world topics, feature-length films and videos by artists, and films with a thematic or conceptual connection to art currently on view in the museum.
