A Clockwork Orange (Screening)

Stanley Kubrick, arguably the greatest filmmaker of all time, brought Anthony Burgess's 1962 dystopian crime novel, A Clockwork Orange, to vibrant life in 1971. The film stars Malcolm McDowell as an ultra-violent Beethoven-obsessed miscreant named Alex DeLarge. Alex and his band of “droogs" wreak havoc throughout London until Alex is apprehended by authorities and forced to take part in a state-sponsored rehabilitation program called the Ludovico technique. Kubrick’s gifts as a master of the medium are on full display here. A Clockwork Orange is a perfect blend of black humor, sociological commentary, science fiction, sexual politics, and music. The film improves with age in a way only Kubrick’s work does. Join us to viddy a special 35mm presentation of ultra-violence and debauchery including an exclusive new poster by Rory Kurtz. You’ll be cured alright.

75% of the seats will be held for RSVPs, which will guarantee a seat in the theater. There will be a standby line outside the theater for the remaining 25% of seats, plus any no-show RSVP spots.
