There are few films that can be genuinely said to be worthy of both a big screen and an Orchestra and choir to provide live music.
Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey turns 50 years old this year, so the Southbank Center is putting on a screening, with the live orchestral and choir accompaniment.
The screening takes place on 28th April at the Royal Festival Hall. Tickets start at £22.50, and can be booked here.
The 50th anniversary itself takes place on 15th May — the date it was first shown in the UK.
Also, if you’re near Tower Bridge, there you can see the original design for the black monolith.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
