On Thursday, June 27, at 6:30 p.m., Thomaston Public Library will host the Saltwater Film Society screening of “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb,” a 1964 Cold War satire directed by Stanley Kubrick.

The film’s narrative is split between the deliberations of a War Room committee and the flight of a single B-52 as it delivers its payload. The cast includes George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, Slim Pickens and Peter Sellers, who plays several of the primary characters. This film was a commercial success and is generally regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.

Admission is free, with donations accepted. The library is in the Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1. For more information about the Saltwater Film Society, visit saltwaterfilmsociety.org.
