A scathing satire on the Cold War, Dr. Strangelove is also Stanley Kubrick's love-letter to the manic comic stylings of Peter Sellers. But Sellers isn't alone (even though he plays three roles): George C. Scott, Slim Pickins, Keenan Wynn, and Sterling Hayden all play against type and are absolutely hilarious.

But the hotel is host to a variety of dark secrets, none more disturbing than those in Room 237.

Wilder's poison-pen letter to Hollywood is as acrid a noir as was ever committed to celluloid.

This lush costume drama is based on Thackeray's picaresque novel about the eponymous Barry Lyndon, a fortune-hunting Irish rogue. With Kubrick's obsessive eye, this film becomes a time machine, ferrying audiences back to the 18th Century with its meticulous sets and costume design, not to mention sets lit only by candlelight. The result is a spellbinding, and surprisingly emotional film from the master.

Kubrick turns his critical eye on Vietnam and the way in which young men become soldiers. Divided into two parts, the first focused on the brutal mind washing of Marine recruits at Parris Island, has been widely regarded as one of the most influential and disturbing military stories ever committed to film. And the second half, showing the results of such training, is equally devastating. Don't miss this rare 35mm screening.

When desperate musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago, they've got to get out of town, and fast. But without any money, what can they do except, well, dress like women and join an all-girls band bound for sunny Florida? The cross-dressing duo find themselves in the same resort as the gangster who order the murders, but that's not the least of their troubles: Joe/Josephine is in love with Marilyn Monroe's "Sugar" and Jerry/Daphne's got a suitor in Osgood Fielding III, a man who won't take no for an answer. This groundbreaking comedy feels ahead of its time even in the 21st Century.

Horrified at the rise of the Nazis, director Fritz Lang created what may be the only anti-Fascist noir in history, a devastating supernatural crime film that suggests that evil is a spiritual force that can take over entire societies. Using actual guns and explosives on the set, both to create realistic sound effects and to induce his cast to a state of near panic, and taking actual quotes from the Nazis to put in the mouths of his antagonists, Lang created a film of almost perverse anxiety, a fever pitch of sound and visual design that will leave viewers both entertained, amazed, and alarmed at its parallels to modern day society.
