‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ Immersive Art Exhibit at The Smithsonian

Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum:

Did you know that 2001: A Space Odyssey premiered 50 years ago at Washington, DC’s Uptown Theater, just a few miles from the National Air and Space Museum? To celebrate the film’s impact on culture and technology, we’re opening a special temporary exhibition of the immersive art installation The Barmecide Feast. In this exhibit, walk into a fully realized, full-scale reflection of the iconic, neo-classical hotel room from the penultimate scene of the film.

The installation will be open to the public from April 8 to May 28, 2018.

Groups of six will be allowed in the room for two minutes.

First thought: This is amazing, can’t wait to see it. Second thought: Two minutes?
