50th Anniversary Screening of DR. STRANGELOVE

Alamo Richardson Special Programming
January 2014 Highlights:
50th Anniversary Screening of DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB hosted by Chris Vognar and Robert Wilonsky, Dallas Morning News (Jan 29)

Dallas – January 16, 2013—Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – Richardson (100 S. Central Expressway #14, Richardson, TX 75080) celebrates the 50th Anniversary screening of DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB on January 29, the day it premiered in 1964.


DR. STRANGELOVE, the British-American black comedy film, satirizes the nuclear scare of the mid- 20th Century. It was directed, produced, and written by Stanley Kubrick (co-written by Dallas resident Terry Southern) and stars Peter Sellers and George C. Scott featuring Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, and Slim Pickens.

“We couldn't let the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's monochrome masterpiece go unnoticed, especially with its roots right here in DFW—screenwriter Terry Southern graduated from Sunset High School in Oak Cliff and an SMU alum—which is why we've tracked down a pristine print of the film on 35MM to be shown on its original release date, January 29. We’ve invited a couple of our friends, namely Chris Vognar and Robert Wilonsky of The Dallas Morning News to introduce it and lead a discussion after the film. Something tells me, we won't have to tell them there's no fighting in the war room on this one!" said James Wallace, Alamo DFW programmer.

Find out tidbits and trivia about DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB on Wednesday, January 29, 2014, 7:45 pm when Robert Wilonsky and Chris Vognar of The Dallas Morning News host the screening 50 years to the day of its release in 1964.

Admission: $10
