The ultimate trip gets the ultimate treatment.

In the science fiction space 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is a wholly singular experience free of equal, it is the bar upon which all films are (unjustly) measured. Comparing Kubrick’s masterpiece to any other science fiction film is the equivalent of putting Usain Bolt on a track with Stephen Hawking. Really, why bother?

As for the rest of the cinematic universe, it’s right up there with the greatest films ever made. It just is. And anyone who argues this point is, well, just wrong. Of course, it’s not even worth arguing about. Unless of course you’re Rotten Tomatoes.

Stanley Kubrick’s genius incarnate has a whopping 94% rating on the review aggregator that is Rotten Tomatoes. In it’s own right that’s a pretty great score, I mean, there’s only a couple of percentage points that it can climb, right?

And surely, those spots are held for the all time classics… THE GODFATHER (99%), JAWS (97%), CITIZEN KANE (100%)… Well, this is where the shit hits the projector as PADDINGTON, the erstwhile story of a cuddly bear in a floppy red hat scores a fierce 98%, CREED, a solid entry into the ROCKY canon, chalks up a knockout 94% and AMY, an excruciatingly painful lyric video gone long, smokes up a whopping 95%.

People of earth, what planet are we living on when PADDINGTON, fucking PADDINGTON, is deemed to be FOUR PERCENTAGE POINTS BETTER THAN STANLEY KUBRICK’S 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY??

Understanding this egregious act of gross human stupidity, there is something you can do to make this evil disappear. You can join us as we marvel at one of THE most transcendent films of all time the way Kubrick intended it to be seen: on a giant screen on 70mm.

We are beyond honored to have the film’s two stars, Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood in attendance. To celebrate, we will be featuring a 2001-themed Laserium cosmic laser concert, performance before the film.
