Free Season Opening Event!
50th Anniversary Live Presentation of

Stanley Kubrick’s
2001: A Space Odyssey

 

UMS and Michigan Engineering co-present a free multi-media community event of Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey, with live orchestral and choral accompaniment.

Registration for this event is currently full. However, after 7:45 pm on the night of the event, any seats not held by priority access passholders will be released to the general public via the standby line. If you wish to join the standby line, please note that it will form at 6 pm on the east side of Hill Auditorium, along Ingalls Mall and the Technology Takeover/Robotics Demonstrations by Michigan Engineering. Event staff will be onsite to answer questions and assist with directions.

Long recognized as one of the greatest science fiction works of all time, 2001: A Space Odyssey is celebrated for its technological realism, innovative special effects, and 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: a spaceship floating serenely through space to the strains of Johann Strauss’s waltz The Blue Danube.

Run Time: Approximately three hours (including a 20-minute intermission). 

Presented in association with Warner Bros., Southbank Centre, and the British Film Institute

5 Important Things to Know

 

1) The event is now in Hill Auditorium

When we first announced this event, it was planned as an outdoor event taking place outdoors on North Campus. The event has since been moved indoors to Hill Auditorium and will begin promptly at 8 pm.

2) Registration does not guarantee admission

Your advance registration is not a guarantee of admission, but will give you priority access to the event before the general public. We’ve had extraordinary demand for this event and are only able to accommodate the capacity of Hill Auditorium (unfortunately, Warner Brothers will not allow us to do overflow screening in another location). Those who have registered will receive priority access to seats before 7:40 pm. At that point, we will open up any remaining seats to the general public.

3) Seating is general admission; Accessible seating is available

Seating is not reserved. It is general admission on all three levels of Hill Auditorium. Again, due to extraordinary demand, we will require that anyone who has registered in advance be in their seats by 7:40 pm. Ushers will be asking people to fill in empty seats as we fully expect this performance to be completely sold out.

If you require accessible seats, please contact our Ticket Office at 734-764-2538.

4) Advance tickets will be emailed on Thursday, September 6.

Again, these tickets are not a guarantee of admission but will give you priority access to the event.

5) Event will last three hours in total

The performance/screening will begin Friday, September 21 at 8 pm, and will last approximately three hours (including a 20-minute intermission).
