Saturday, Dec. 30, 3 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—The eighth annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series at the Billings Farm & Museum will feature the award-winning documentary “2001: A Space Odyssey,” on Saturday, Dec. 30, at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. in HD projection and surround sound, with complimentary refreshments. All films are open to the public and accessible to people with disabilities. Reservations are strongly recommended.
“Only a few films are transcendent and work upon audience’s minds and imaginations like music or prayer or a vast belittling landscape … Alone among science-fiction movies, 2001 is not concerned with thrilling us, but with inspiring our awe,” said Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times.
The film is rated G. It won an Academy Award for Best Special Effects; plus Academy Award nominations for Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Art Direction; and an additional 13 wins and 10 nominations.
Tickets prices for members: adults 16 age up, $9; non-members: adults 16 and up, $11. For more information, visit billingsfarm.org/filmfest or call 802-457-2355.
