Paramount Summer Classic Film Series presented by Capital Metro


1960 | 197 min. | Color | 70mm
Director: Stanley Kubrick
Cast: Kirk Douglas, Laurence Olivier, Jean Simmons, Charles Laughton, Peter Ustinov, and Tony Curtis

Kirk Douglas rivetingly portrays the titular slave as he rebels against all the indecencies of ancient Rome in this remarkable epic. This is the film that kickstarted Stanley Kubrick’s directing career and effectively ended a regrettable period in Hollywood’s history when the formerly blacklisted Dalton Trumbo was publicly announced as the screenwriter.

Doors: 7:00pm | Film: 7:30pm

Tickets: $12
Film Fan Admission: $8
FLIX-TIX: 10 admissions for $60 ($50 for Film Fans)
