The city of Tyler's Liberty Hall will feature films from Stanley Kubrick in August, according to a press release from the city.

Stanley Kubrick was an American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer and editor. His films, typically adaptations of novels or short stories, are noted for their unique cinematography, attention to details to achieve realism and an inspired use of music scores, according to a press release from the city. Kubrick's films cover a variety of genres, including war, crime, romance, black comedy, horror, epics and science fiction.

While some of Kubrick's films were controversial and received mixed reviews, most of his films were nominated for Oscars or Golden Globes and were later acclaimed as being masterpieces, the release stated.

Liberty will show "Paths of Glory" (Thursday); "Spartacus" (Aug. 8); "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" (Aug. 15); "A Clockwork Orange" (Aug. 22); and "Full Metal Jacket" (Aug. 29); all at 7 p.m.

Kubrick's films are often violent and are not for children, according to the release.

Liberty Hall will feature the Jimmy Stewart classic, "Harvey" (1950) for the whole family at 3 p.m. Saturday. The classic stage hit gets the Hollywood treatment in the story of Elwood P. Dowd, who makes friends with a spirit taking the form of a 6-foot tall rabbit named Harvey. Only Elwood can see Harvey and occasionally a few privileged others. After Elwood's sister tries to commit him to a mental institution, a comedy of errors ensues. Elwood and Harvey become the catalysts for a family mending its wounds and for romance blossoming in unexpected places, according to the release.

Doors open an hour before the movies. Tickets are available online or at the door for $5. Go to www.LibertyTyler.com for more information. Be sure to "Like" us on Facebook for daily updates.
