THIS AFTERNOON’S FILM : DR STRANGELOVE (1964 B/W 94m U Cert) 

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, more commonly known as Dr. Strangelove, is a 1964 political satire black comedy film that satirizes the Cold War fears of a nuclear conflict between the Soviet Union and the United States.

The film was directed, produced, and co-written by Stanley Kubrick, stars Peter Sellers and George C. Scott, and features Sterling HaydenKeenan Wynn, and Slim Pickens. Production took place in the United Kingdom. The film is loosely based on Peter George‘s thriller novel Red Alert (1958).

The story concerns an unhinged United States Air Force general who orders a first strike nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. It follows the President of the United States, his advisers, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a Royal Air Force (RAF) officer as they try to recall the bombers to prevent a nuclear apocalypse. It separately follows the crew of one B-52bomber as they try to deliver their payload.

An apt film to show over fifty years on when one thinks currently of America and North Korea.

As usual, UGT film buff Chris Leach will take pleasure in giving an upbeat powerpoint presentation before the film, enthusing about the movie and what the star actors and crew did in their careers and lives.  He’ll also point out who to look out for.

The film is just over 90 minutes long, so there will be no intermission.

Tea and cakes, included in your admission price of just a fiver, will follow after the film.

The cinema is set in traditional and table style, allowing you to take drinks and food in with you to enjoy at leisure throughout the film.

Sunday 7th January 2018 at 2.30pm. Venue and coffee bar open at 2pm.
