Event description

Description

The United States Studies Centre invites you to a special screening of Stanley Kubrick’s acclaimed 1964 political satire, Dr Strangelove, at the Chauvel Cinema in Paddington.

Visiting Fellow Stephen Loosley AM (whose expertise combines presidential politics and Hollywood history) will host an audience discussion following the film, addressing its Cold War subject-matter and its relevance in a renewed era of nuclear unease.

The film was nominated for four Academy Awards and was among the first group of films selected by the US Library of Congress to be preserved in the National Film Register. The Plot follows various actors in the US nuclear chain of command as they try to stop the crew of US Airforce B-52 bomber from carrying out a wrongly issued order to launch a nuclear first-strike on Russia.

Ticket includes the film, discussion and refreshments. Tickets are non-refundable but transferable.
