Dr. Stranglove: Revisiting the Cold War | Screening and Discussion

“It is time for another Dr. Strangelove, or at least a revival of it”
—Daniel Ellsberg

Join us for a screening of Dr. Strangelove, Stanley Kubrick’s classic satire on warfare, power and Cold War mindsets. Viewed as a wacky black comedy on its release in 1964, it revealed secrets of nuclear weapon policy unknown to audiences at the time, some of which are still operational today.

After the screening, David Denby, staff writer and former film critic for The New Yorker, and James M. Lindsay of the Council on Foreign Relations will discuss the film’s importance and continued relevance.

For ages 21+. Beer and wine available for purchase before the film (6:30pm–7:30pm).

Doors open at 6:30pm
