Dr. Strangelove at the Arlington Drafthouse Wednesday Jan 30th at 7:30PM

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Comedy Film Bucket List Meetup Members who RSVP'd get FREE ADMISSION!

We may not worry about Nuclear War like we did in the 60's, but this dark comedy by Stanley Kubrick and staring Peter Sellers is still funny. We are going for a classic Comedy film in January... Before you kick the bucket - you must see this comedy. If you have already seen it - you must see it again... with us!

About the Movie:
(R) (95 min) 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, even as its issues have become (slightly) less timely.

Just RSVP and you and your guest (if you opted to bring one) get in for free and will have your name on the VIP list.

    I just moved to Arlington and I'm looking forward to meeting new people. Normally I watch Dr. Strangelove around Christmas time, but, this year, all my dvds were in storage in preparation for my move so I missed it. I can't wait to see it on the big screen!

      That's when it showed up from Netflix. The first time I watched it, I was snowed in and putting up my tree. I ended up watching it 3 or 4 times that weekend.

    I heard that Peter Sellers was in his prime back in 64. I must agree. He was sitting in the right seat in the war room.
