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
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?
