Though never prolific--releasing only 16 films in a nearly fifty year career--Stanley Kubrick was nonetheless known as a meticulous filmmaker whose every picture--heck, every frame!--is a cinematic masterpiece. This obsessive filmmaker lived in near isolation in England, emerging in rare intervals to unleash another mind-bending classic that would challenge, infuriate, and amaze audiences in equal measure. The Heights is proud to present five of Kubrick's greatest films.
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.

DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION.
Jack Torrence, a recovering alcoholic, retreats to the Overlook Hotel with his wife, Wendy, and son, Danny, in tow, in the hopes of breaking his writer's block. But the hotel is host to a variety of dark secrets, none more disturbing than those in Room 237. The Shining is one of Kubrick's more startling masterpieces, and Jack Nicholson's performance is the stuff of legend.

Without question the most requested 70mm film is returning to the Heights. Kubrick's masterpiece, and widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time, 2001: A Space Odyssey deserves not only to be seen on the big screen, but in epic 70mm.
