Spartacus (1960) Extended Version with 12 Additional Minutes:
Spartacus, the genre-defining epic from director Stanley Kubrick, is the legendary tale of a bold gladiator (Kirk Douglas) who led a triumphant Roman slaverevolt. Restored from large format 35mm original film elements, this action-packed spectacle won four Academy Awards®, including Best Cinematographyand Best Art Direction**.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Kubrick’s dazzling, Academy Award®-winning† achievement is a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonised space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality. “Open the pod bay doors, HAL”. Let an awesome journey unlike any other begin.
A Clockwork Orange (1971)
Stomping, whomping, stealing, singing, tap dancing, violating. Derby-topped hooligan Alex (Malcolm McDowell) has a good time – at the tragic expense of others. His journey from amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen and back again forms the dynamic arc of Kubrick’s future-shock vision of Anthony Burgess’ novel. Controversial when first released, A Clockwork Orange won New York Film Critics Best Picture and Director awards and earned four Oscar® nominations, including Best Picture. Its power still entices, shocks and holds us in its grasp.
The Shining (1980)
Academy Award® winner‡ Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall star in Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s disturbing blockbuster horror novel. Writer Jack Torrance (Nicholson), a former alcoholic, accepts a job as the winter caretaker for a hotel high in the Rocky Mountains, isolating him, his wife (Duvall) and their psychic young son until spring. But when the first blizzard blocks the only road out, the hotel’s stored energy from evil past deeds begins to drive Jack insane...and there may be no escape for his family in this haunting story of madness, memory, and violence.
Full Metal Jacket (1987)
Matthew Modine, Vincent D’Onofrio and R. Lee Ermey – as a drill instructor from hell – shine in this gripping chronicle of U.S. Marine recruits during the Vietnam War. Shifting from the raw brutality of basic training to the dehumanising effects of combat, Full Metal Jacket deftly combines nonstop action with scathing dark humour.
