Bringing Essential Cinema to Phoenix


PHX Film Collective is a group of film fans dedicated to bringing culturally relevant cinema to Central Phoenix. We partner with local businesses to put on screenings of classics, independent, foreign and art house cinema in interesting locations. Our goal is to eventually open an independent non-profit movie theatre to serve the Central Phoenix community.




Dr. Strangelove, Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

AT CHANGING HANDS PHOENIX - Saturday, July 14 at 7:30pm

Our inaugural event is a screening of Stanley Kubrick's 1964 classic, Dr. Strangelove, Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. We wanted to bring something politically relevant to the screen, and unfortunately this classic farce about the most hubristic, incompetent and blindly patriotic members of our government bringing about the end of the world fits the bill almost too perfectly.

Dr. Strangelove stars the incomparable Peter Sellers in three roles: RAF Group Captain Lionel Mandrake, President of the United States Merkin Muffley, and the titular mad scientist. It also features a manic performance from George C. Scott as General Buck Turgidson, Sterling Hayden as Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper, and Slim Pickens as Major 'King' Kong.

Since the dissolution of the Cold War, Dr. Strangelove has been easy to laugh at from a safe distance. How is the experience of watching it altered under the looming specter of actual nuclear war? Join us and find out, even if you already have the DVD sitting on your shelf. We guarantee the gallows humor will go down easier with a cold pint and a friendly shoulder to cry on.

Rated PG.  1hr 35mins.
