In 1964, with the Cuban Missile Crisis fresh in viewers’ minds, the Cold War at its frostiest, and the hydrogen bomb relatively new and frightening, Stanley Kubrick dared to make a film about what could happen if the wrong person pushed the wrong button — and played the situation for laughs. 

Dr. Strangelove’s jet-black satire (from a script by director Stanley Kubrick, Peter George, and Terry Southern) and a host of superb comic performances (including three from Peter Sellers) have kept the film fresh and entertaining, while its themes, much as some would like to think otherwise, are no less politically relevant.

All welcome, entry is Free and donations are appreciated. As always, books, t-shirts, badges or Zapatista coffee can all be purchased on the night.
