Slab Cinema is back and crazier than ever


The rain went away for a while at least, so Slab Cinema's setting up outside again. Tonight, at Hemisphere Park, check out Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, set to begin at sundown, which according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, will happen at 8:36pm sharp. Don't be late or you'll miss the monkeys. Bring the whole family and ride home in a strange philosophical funk you just won't get from Marmaduke. Or if classical music and giant ships floating silently and impossibly slowly across the screen make you sleepy, you'll do what I usually do and pass out during the TMA-1 segment not to wake up until HAL's meltdown. Bring along a more cultured friend to shoo the crickets off your face.
