The Summer Film Series returns, this year showcasing the power of black and white!
Discover how directors have used this monochromatic style, by choice or by necessity, to achieve a variety of effects, as you explore each film with local film historian Jacob Greenberg. A black-and-white short film will precede each screening. Crocker Art Museum members can purchase a series ticket and attend all four concerts for the price of three.
As potent today as when debuted 53 years ago, this biting satire about nuclear war stars the inimitable Peter Sellers in multiple roles including that of Dr. Strangelove, an ex-Nazi nuclear war expert, and George C. Scott as a US Air Force General. Directed by Stanley Kubrick (“The Shining”; “A Clockwork Orange”), “Dr. Strangelove” was nominated for multiple Oscars including Best Picture, and is widely considered one of the greatest political comedies of all time.
