Stanley Kubrick’s epic historical drama about one rebellious slave (Kirk Douglas) who inspires a revolt against his Roman oppressors marked the first time in 13 years that screenwriter Dalton Trumbo’s name appeared on screen after being blacklisted.
Note: Due to a schedule change, the Thursday November 19th screening of Spartacus has been cancelled.
Filled with a wealth of great actors, lush Technicolor cinematography, visceral fight sequences, and a scandalous blend of political rebellion and sexual suggestion, Spartacus won four Oscars and remains a classic that is always a treat on the big screen.
