Stanley Kubrick's powerful Vietnam War drama about raw recruits who endure basic training under a sadistic drill sergeant and fight in the 1968 Tet Offensive is a film "of immense and very rare imagination" (New York Times) and widely regarded as one of the greatest of all war movies, in part for its depiction of the military's use of dehumanization. Part of the Coolidge Corner Theatre's Science on Screen series, the film will be introduced by Jonathan Shay, PhD, MD, a nationally known expert on combat trauma. For 20 years, Dr. Shay was a staff psychiatrist at the Department of Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic, Boston, where he treated Vietnam veterans.

Tickets: $9.75 general admission/$7.75 students and Museum of Science members, free for Coolidge Corner Theatre members
