"Dr. Strangelove" at Paramount Theater

Outside in:


Going to see Dr. Strangelove at the Paramount tomorrow night. Tempted to sneak in a camcorder and bootleg it, just to see the reaction.

Best overheard at Dr. Strangelove screening in Oakland: 30 years later and it’s still true!

Just saw Dr. Strangelove at The Paramount in #Oakland. Honestly need some time to take it all in acting-wise. #PeterMotherEffingSellers

Inside out:

I have to wonder what it says about the city, that we can have events like this one along a particular continuum of taste and vision and affinity, and that these events tend to occur in certain neighborhoods at certain times. Even if the crowd looks and sounds diverse, it doesn’t always feel that way.

I miss the Parkway Theater. I want a new Parkway. I want movies like this all over Oakland, not just on Friday, and crowds clamoring like this, not just on Broadway, and I want it all by tomorrow.
