Event description: It's not exactly Sesame Street, but with a PG rating, Barry Lyndon offers a nice way to give the younger kids some culture. William Makepeace Thackeray's novel about an eighteenth-century Irish opportunist's rise and fall is, in Kubrick's hands, a painting come to life. Oscar-winning cinematography, art direction, costume design, and music combine with Kubrick's fine-tuned sense of irony and drama for a one-of-a-kind sensory and intellectual experience. Ever the innovator, Kubrick employed special camera lenses built for NASA to best capture candlelight on screen.
