// Double Feature
An uproarious look at midcentury doomsday scenarios, Dr. Strangelove imagines the consequences of a deranged U.S. general ordering an atomic strike on Russia, and the witheringly lame attempts by the President and the Pentagon to control the damage.
With Sterling Hayden, Slim Pickens, George C. Scott, Keenan Wynn, and Peter Sellars, playing three separate characters, including an prescient caricature of an advisor who might almost be Dr. Henry Kissinger. (93 mins., 35mm) Kubrick’s breakout success, The Killing is a compulsively engaging story of a racetrack heist as it comes together and then unravels. Memorable location shooting is matched by a vivid cast of low-life schemers and dreamers, headed by Sterling Hayden, Timothy Carey, Elisha Cook, and Marie Windsor. (85 mins., 35mm)
The Killing starts at 8:45 PM.
