“THE FILMS OF STANLEY KUBRICK” AT ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE
I can’t remember if my first Stanley Kubrick film was A Clockwork Orange or The Shining, but my first viewings were on VHS in the basement of my childhood home. Those two films ignited my life-long appreciation for Kubrick’s work as images from those films and many others have been seared in my head ever since then. There’s also my Eyes Wide Shut story, which I’ll tell you in person some day. Now imagine seeing his films on the big screen, the way he meant them to be studied.
The Alamo Drafthouse in Woodbury, MN is presenting “The Films of Stanley Kubrick” a nearly-complete retrospective of his work from 1955’s Killer’s Kiss through Eyes Wide Shut which was released in 1999 shortly after he passed away. These films are not to be missed on the big screen. Even if you’ve seen Dr. Strangelove or 2001: A Space Odyssey countless times before, there’s always something new to pick up on. Maybe this is your first time with Barry Lyndon or Spartacus. Whatever the case may be, head over to their website and order your tickets today.
