First time seeing this film in my life and it was at the 70mm Cinerama Dome. Was tripping balls the entire time.

70mm at it's finest, just the way it was released 50 years ago. The music and sound effects were dramatic and scary. Be wary though, some scenes may get too loud.

Metacritic

100

Only a few films are transcendent, and work upon our 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.

A masterpiece that can still leave you dizzy with wonder. As much as any movie ever made, this visionary science-fiction tale of space travel and first contact with extraterrestrial life is a spellbinding experience.
