Enjoy Dr. No -- The First 007 Movie -- Showing in Atlanta-area Theaters to Celebrate the 60th Year of James Bond Flicks


When Dr. No premiered in movie theatres in 1962, the world was a very different place. In the clutches of the Cold War with guided missiles aimed at major cities, the story of a daring playboy super spy who could simultaneously save the world from a cartoonish archvillain while romancing beautiful women provided titillations, entertainment and much-needed distraction.

And thus the world was introduced to Bond, James Bond, played by Sean Connery. Little did we know back then that the Bond movie would become a formula and a franchise, searing into our memories a legion of real actors, glamourous female stars, unforgettable villains and incredible filming locations.

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of Dr. No, Fathom Events is bringing the classic film to theaters for a one-day event, Sunday, August 21. Several theaters in the metro Atlanta area are offering the feature. Atlanta-area locations and tickets are available online. The AMC Barrett Commons theaters in Kennesaw will show the special-edition release at 3 pm and 7 pm.

Accompanying the screening is “Being James Bond”, a 45-minute feature in which Daniel Craig candidly reflects on his fifteen-year tenure as James Bond. It includes never-before-seen archival footage spanning from ‘Casino Royale’ (2006) to ‘No Time to Die’ (2021).

In his explosive film debut, Sean Connery is the action hero whose secret mission takes him to Jamaica. There, mysterious energy waves are interfering with U.S. missile launches. As he unravels the truth and searches for the headquarters of the sinister recluse known as Dr. No, Bond fights deadly assassins and sexy femme fatales to thwart an evil plan of world domination.

Dr. No is the first of 25 films produced by Eon Productions, the firm founded by producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman to purchase the filming rights to Ian Fleming's spy novels. Two additional films featured James Bond, Casino Royale in 1967 and Never Say Never Again in1983.
