Movies at the United Palace: “2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY” (1971)

In 1969, the Loew’s 175th Street Theatre faced an uncertain future as the era of the single screen movie houses was ending and the building was falling into disrepair. The theatre was rescued when a spiritual center, now known as the United Palace of Spiritual Arts (UPSA), purchased the building and began restoring its timeless grandeur. Ever since then it has continued to hold Sunday services, serve the community, and provide best in class entertainment. We’ll celebrate 50 years of spiritual artistry with a live pre-show theatre organ performance and special screening of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, the last movie shown in 1969.
Following the movie will be an anniversary service that explores the ongoing power of 2001, honors UPSA’s last 50 years, and kicks-off the countdown to February 2020 when the United Palace turns 90. The ceremony will be led by UPSA Board Chair Jean Houston. We’ll continue the festivities with an after party on stage.
