'When I was a kid, the future was different," George Clooney grumbles at the start of Tomorrowland , Disney's ambitious, big-budget adventure. Then the Brad Bird-directed fantasy, which opened Friday, toggles back to the 1964 World's Fair, where optimism and invention ruled the day - and promised even better days ahead for humankind. Of course, that "great big beautiful tomorrow" turns out to have a dark core. That's the way it has been in most visions of the future realized on film.

Does man use tools or vice-versa? This question haunts 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick's masterwork about the evolution of humanity from monkey to man and of tools from club to computer. The Chestnut Hill Film Group is offering a rare opportunity to see Kubrick's 1968 masterpiece on the big screen, and to understand that no one imagined the way the future looked more evocatively than the filmmaker in his hugely influential, if sometimes impenetrable, space opera. 2001: A Space Odyssey is scheduled to be shown at the Chestnut Hill branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia.

It is of great importance to follow the news reports such as those published in The Inquirer about the emerging countries of South America - Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Peru, among others - because the true future of the United States lies with the republics south of the border. It is not far away the day when Hispanics of U.S. citizenship will represent America before the Latin American republics, hence the need to speak the Spanish language on the part of those willing to travel, do business or settle there.

'You can never plan the future by the past," said Edmund Burke. Too often, however, government plans for the future are based only on past experiences. When government does look forward, it may be for only one budget cycle. As a departure from this norm, the city controller's office undertook a project to make suggestions for the future based on an analysis of the challenges and opportunities that await Philadelphia in the next century.The product of that project became the book, "Philadelphia: A New Urban Direction.

More people - but with smaller family sizes - living in ever-bigger houses on larger lots are adding up to a loss of Chester County's open spaces, natural features and farmland. It's a trend that county government is seeking to reverse, through guidelines for future growth, planning money for municipalities, and preservation of open space. Next month, the county will hold a summit meeting on the issue. A conference is set for 4:30 to 9 p.m. Monday, March 31, at Unionville High School to discuss the successes and failures of the county's preservation efforts and to chart local and countywide strategies to guide growth.

Sam Hinkie is the guy you want next to you when you're robbing a bank. He is the guy you can tell a secret and be sure that it is safe with him. He is a man with a plan and good luck trying to get him to tell you exactly what it is. We still are no closer to knowing, however, if Sam Hinkie is the right man for the job of rebuilding a basketball team. The commander of Tank 76 ran his third draft Thursday night and discovered once again that the best-laid plans can be blown to smithereens by unforeseen circumstances.

The Kenney campaign is looking for a few good community organizers. Or, to be more accurate, a few good community organizers-to-be. "We want to have anchors in all parts of the city," said Lauren Hitt, spokeswoman for Philadelphia Democratic mayoral candidate Jim Kenney. "We want people who believe in Jim or who believe in their community or who just want a voice in city government. " To that end - and to help register new voters - the campaign is looking for volunteers in its "Summer Organizing Fellowship for Jim Kenney.

AS I WROTE last week, there is plenty of reason to be skeptical about the Phillies' reported interest in bringing aboard longtime baseball executive Andy MacPhail to eventually replace club president Pat Gillick. That skepticism has less to do with MacPhail himself than it does the process that would have landed him. Gillick's comments in interviews with the Inquirer and MLB.com over the weekend suggest he is intimately involved in picking his replacement. Given the organization's ownership structure, with no majority owner imposing his or her vision, it isn't clear who else would spearhead such an effort.

A Norristown neighborhood is to be awash in music, splashing, cheers, and laughter Saturday as the historic George Washington Carver Community Center pool is resurrected. Once the party is over, however, organizers will resume the tough slog of rebranding, raising money, and proving to the community that the center can be self-sustaining for years to come. "We have to get through this season, and we have to validate whether or not the community really wants these types of programs," said the Rev. Byron Craig, who leads the new board of directors, installed in October.

The corner of 15th and Chestnut Streets is among Center City's busiest, but on the last Friday in May, the activity inside 1515 Chestnut St. could be ranked a close second. Workers scrambled to complete everything from the 15th Street lobby to the 17th-floor amenities before Monday's grand opening of the Avenir - French for "future" - tower of 180 rental apartments in what was once the 150,000-square-foot Class B office building. Just inside the lobby entrance sat a security guard, providing 24/7 duty for the seven residents who had already moved in. "Those residents got to put on hard hats and get the first pick," said Jessica M. Scully of Scully Co., who is overseeing every detail of Avenir's debut on the apartment scene.

Barely 36 hours after a horrific hit-and-run accident that cost him his right leg, stage actor Michael Toner focused on the future. "What can you say? Life is unpredictable," Toner, 68, said Wednesday from his hospital bed at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. "I've been in much worse situations, let's put it that way. " Toner ended up at Jefferson after a vehicle ran him down before 1 a.m. Tuesday on Market Street between 11th and 12th Streets, where he remained until a passerby found him. Toner said he had been running errands when he was struck, which he thinks happened about 11 p.m. Otherwise, he doesn't remember anything.

Angel Corella's first year as artistic director of Pennsylvania Ballet has been one of many changes. The entire artistic staff was replaced, new dancers and guest artists were hired, and, just Monday, Alexander Peters was promoted to principal dancer. But what hardly changed was the lineup of ballets audiences saw all season. "I was actually very pleased with the whole season," Corella said. "I know I could have changed a lot of the ballets that Roy [Kaiser, his predecessor] picked, but I thought it was actually quite interesting.
