If I had to choose a favorite movie of all time, it would be a tie between 2001 and It’s a Wonderful Life. Over the holidays I went to see the Kubrick exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). There was a separate room dedicated to each of his movies. It was wicked.

2001‘s world premiere was on April 2, 1968 at the Uptown Theater in Washington, D.C. It premiered at the Capitol Theatre in New York City on April 3, 1968. The Capitol was demolished later that year.
