And that's why these days kids don't go to premières - they just will not shut up during the film.....

I just want to say I miss Howard Johnson's restaurants, I used to love their fried clams.

Once you start noticing when lazy writers give up on trying to tell a story and just resort to characters spouting exposition, you never really stop noticing it. Apparently, in writers' worlds, people are constantly tell each other things they ought to already know: "There goes the bad guy's truck! The bomb is in there!"

Yes, the "repairman" just "slips away" from the antenna. He wasn't at all deliberately killed by a psychotic AI. And who the hell is that guy in the pod bay with Bowman?

We didn't live near a Howard Johnson's in 1968, but the fuzzy little waitress at Stuckey's did a pretty good improvisation of
2001's bone throwing scene, using a pecan log roll.

The projectionist must have screwed up the reels, given that they were seeing the Bowman and Poole before the space stewardess.

What's more, they're obscuring no less than Ronald Reagan's view.

"I'd never have guessed the way this mystery was solved," said nobody who has ever watched 2001 for the first time.

Apparently, they passed out LSD at the movies.

"2001" was a staple at our local kiddy matinees. The babysitters all smoked cigarettes that smelled funny.

/yes, I am old enough to remember when smoking was allowed inside

My family stayed at a HoJos in Oklahoma City back then and I distinctly recall while there watching a free extended preview of the movie. I wonder if this is really part of a menu or if it was a giveaway from that preview. i don't recall getting a copy but I do remember thinking this has to be the most mind blowing movie ever.

I remember watching that as a child. I was somewhat alarmed at the notion time could flow out of sequence.

That Black Hole movie was actually scary though.

You're not alone.  My parents took me to see 2001 when I was three.

Soon thereafter, lil' Billy and Mary Sue moved to a camp off Big Sur and changed their names to Moonglow. But they never forgot their first love: HoJo's ice cream sundaes.
