Political comedy in a picturesque setting
Since launching in 2000, Brooklyn Bridge Park has been the perfect setting for Syfy Movies With A View. What view, you may ask? The sprawling Manhattan skyline just across the river that is. What with a perfect breeze from the East River, over 340,000 moviegoers, and the breathtaking skyline, Thursday nights have become a favorite among New Yorkers for all the right reasons. For this one, get ready for Stanley Kubrick's '60s political satire Dr. Strangelove or, to use it's full name, Dr. Strangelove Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb. (Bit of a mouthful, right?) Never before has a film captured the Cold War paranoia that pervaded the era more perfectly. Peter Sellers stars in the war comedy about a room full of generals trying to avert nuclear disaster. DJ $mall ¢hange and short film Yearbook will start proceedings before Dr. Strangelove begins at sundown on the lawn. "Perhaps Kubrick's most perfectly realized film, simply because his cynical vision of the progress of technology and human stupidity is wedded with comedy." – Time Out "This landmark movie's madcap humor and terrifying suspense remain undiminished by time." – Chicago Tribune Rating: PG. Runtime: 1 hour 35 minutes. DJs start at 6pm and movie starts at sundown. This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed.
