This weekend, the Cane Fire Film Series is dusting off a classic cinema gem from its collection for the first entry in its new Cane Fire Classics with Stanley Kubrick’s immortal Cold War satire Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

Dr.-Strangelove The film stars Peter Sellers as the title character, among others, and Geroge C. Scott as they work to prevent nuclear holocaust after a deranged United States Air Force general orders a squadron of B-52s to drop its payload of hydrogen bombs on the Soviet Union.

Most of the story takes place in a war room filled with the President of the United States, his advisers, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a Royal Air Force officer as they determine the best course of action for averting armageddon, but also follows the crew of one of the fated B-52s as they attempt to deliver their payload.

Cane Fire Classics screens Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb on Sunday, July 21, at 7:30 p.m., at Cité des Arts located at 109 Vine St., in downtown Lafayette. Admission is $8 in advance and $10 at the door. For more information call (337) 356-5153, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit
