Presented in conjunction with the new exhibition A View from the Deep: The Submarine Growler & the Cold War.
The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will host a screening of Dr. Strangelove, Stanley Kubrick’s classic satire on warfare, power and Cold War mindsets, followed by a conversation in the Allison & Howard Lutnick Theater on Thursday, June 7th at the Intrepid Museum located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue). Doors open 6:30pm, event begins at 7:30pm.
Viewed as a wacky black comedy on its release in 1964, Dr. Strangelove 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.
This event is open to adults age 21 and over. Beer and wine will be available for purchase before the film. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $12 for Museum members.
