After a tycoon finances a spaceship, the United States makes the world’s first-ever trip to the moon in this 1950 sci-fi adventure. But once there, the astronauts realize a miscalculation means they might not have enough fuel to return to Earth. Now they must frantically work to lighten their rocket for the return trip. Based on a novel by Robert A. Heinlein.
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY
(UK / USA, 1967) 148 minutes
Sometime in the distant past, someone or something nudged human evolution by placing a black monolith on Earth. That evolutionary spark imparted to humanity’s ancestors enabled humankind to eventually reach the moon’s surface, where yet another monolith is uncovered — one that once uncovered signals to the monolith makers that humankind has evolved into a spacefaring species and may be ready for first contact.
