"2001: A Space Odyssey" will premiere Wednesday and Thursday
in two benefit performances at the Villa Theatre.
The benefits, sponsored by the Sugar House Chamber of Commerce and the
Utah Chapter of Arthritis Foundation, will precede the regular opening
of the film on Friday.
"2001: A Space Odyssey," produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick,
is the story of two astronauts who board a spaceship for a trip through
space in the year 2001.
The movie, using present day scientific knowledge, attempts to predict
what future space travel may be like.
