50 years ago, Stanley Kubrick’s and Arthur C. Clarke’s film "2001: A Space Odyssey" hit theaters in the United States. To celebrate the half-century milestone of the film's premiere, the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. has launched a temporary exhibit enabling attendees to relive one of the final scenes in real time.

The exhibit, called "The Barmecide Feast," recreates the hotel room from the second to last scene in the film.
