scarcely recognize it!), didn't see any posts about this:
-On Sunday, 10/12/08, there was a gala event/screening celebrating
"2001", as part of the Jules Verne Film Festival's L.A. run, at the
Edison Bar + Imaginasian theater downtown.
-Vivian Kubrick was there to accept the Jules Verne award on behalf of
her father, and there was a short question-and-answer stage w/her,
Kier Dullea, and Dan Richter (lead ape!), led by the underwhelming Ben
Mankiewicz (of the revamped-At-the-Movies notoriety).
-At the end of the presentation, the award was finally handed over by
the 'surprise guest' Malcolm McDowell, who as always displayed
trademark passive-aggressiveness in recollecting his working with SK.
The event was apparently popular enough that they've now added "2001"
screenings all this week through Thursday (the 'official' festival
runs Friday through Sunday) at 7pm, here's the link:
