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

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Director: Stanley Kubrick Run Time: 93 min. Format: DCP Rating: PG Release Year: 1964

Starring: Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, Slim Pickens, James Earl Jones

Only Kubrick could make a strange, weird, and brilliant black comedy centering around nuclear weapons in the Cold War era that would still resonate more than fifty years after its initial release. Dr. Strangelove tells the story of an unhinged Air Force general Jack Ripper supercede presidential approval to launch a nuclear bomb over the Soviet Union and the room full of politicians and generals trying to stop a nuclear apocalypse. The thing that makes it great is that it’s a comedy, a jet black comedy. And, as with any Kubrick film, it’s best to just see it on the big screen.
