    I love the clear plastic logic modules! And where are the wires? That has got to be the neatest computer installation in the history of computers.

    I saw it when it came out at a theater that they only made a few , with curved screen , it was the Cooper Theater - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinerama
    As a kid , it gave my neck a workout , also saw Blue Max , Grand Prix , by then I had really strong neck muscles , the seat also reclined .
    It's long enough since the last one , TIME FOR THE NEXT one to come out ;)

    So Eric , I see you changed your avatar , are things going south , into the crapper ;)

    I read in a survey somewhere that Russians think 2001 was the best sci-fi movie made, more so than their beloved Solaris. (Having seen both, I'd agree.)

    At least the logic modules look modern--in the old Star Trek TV series, their square memory cards looked to be of painted wood.

    When shown in the theaters, stoners would wait to time their downing of acid to "experience" the "light-show" at the end.
