Dr. Strangelove (1964) at Tampa Theatre
Film: The year is 1964. The Berlin Wall went up just three years ago. Worldwide extinction by nuclear annihilation is never far from anybody’s mind — the idea of preparing for even some humans surviving a nuclear exchange was officially discouraged as an unbalancing political influence. Everybody knows it’s the end of the world. So: what’s there to do but laugh? 3pm.
