I saw “2001: A Space Odyssey” here last night. It was a Blu-Ray presentation, and the screen wasn’t as big as I’d hoped, but it was slightly curved – a nice touch for a film that was originally shown in Cinerama. The sound system was excellent, and the theater staff was very friendly. I’m glad I went.

A highlight of the evening: to get to the theatre I had to walk around the Unisphere, the gigantic steel globe that was the symbol of the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. I hadn’t been so close to it since 1965.

Shortly after the closure of the Worlds Fair I saw a live production of Come Back Little Sheba with Jan Sterling.
