2001: A Space Odyssey
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey

COLONY THEATRE—Party like it's 2001 with Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi magnum opus 2001: A Space Odyssey. Although its vision of life in the future is not without its inaccuracies—the red communists of the Soviet Union and the orange roofs of Howard Johnson restaurants didn't quite survive the millennium—the groundbreaking film was nominated for four Academy Awards. A 35mm print will be shown as part of the Colony's Cult Classics at the Colony series. It starts tonight at 8 p.m. and admission is $5. —Karlie Justus

DUKE WEST CAMPUS—Catch the final performance of Past/ Forward, a program of revivals of old pieces by modern dance pioneers Helen Tamiris and Laura Dean. Tamiris' How Long Brethren? originally appeared in 1937 and embodies that era's earnest leftism, with a score composed of Negro folk songs. Dean's Skylight is more recent, dating to 1982, and in between, the program also will include Rudy Perez's new I Like a View but I Like to Sit With My Back to It. Past/ Forward begins at 8 p.m. in Reynolds Industries Theater. Visit for more information. —David Fellerath
