Open-air movies have become a Utah summer tradition in multiple venues, from the lawn of the Utah Capitol to public parks around the Salt Lake Valley. The Utah Film Center and Gallivan Center’s own spin on that tradition is to provide a month of themed classic films—and in July 2014, that theme is picking one of the classic film comedies from four consecutive decades. The Monday night program kicks off with Dr. Strangelove, director Stanley Kubrick’s savage Cold War-era adaptation of the novel Fail-Safe, about a mentally unhinged American general who threatens to start a nuclear war. Featuring some of the most memorable quotes in movie history—“Gentlemen! You can’t fight in here. This is the War Room!”—and a brilliant triple performance by Peter Sellers, it’s laugh-because-you’re-trying-not-to-cry stuff. Bring your low-backed chair or lawn towel, and get ready for a month that also features Annie Hall, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Groundhog Day. (Scott Renshaw, City Weekly)
