50th Anniversary!

Dr. Strangelove: or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Great Britain | 1964 | Stanley Kubrick

When mad U.S. Army General Jack D. Ripper single-handedly launches a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union (he’s convinced that Communists are contaminating our “precious bodily fluids” via fluoridation), all hell breaks loose in Washington and Moscow. Stanley Kubrick’s seminal Cold War comedy is not only one of the funniest movies ever made, it’s also one of the most suspenseful. There’s no let-up in great lines and memorable characters, three of whom are played by Peter Sellers!

94 min. New 35mm print! A deadly serious treatment of this same subject, Fail-Safe, shows 4/5 at 5:15 pm. Both films were released in 1964.
