See this film series: "James Bond 007 Weekend" at the Somerville Theatre

Dr. No (1962)

In what has got to be the longest-lived and most successful franchise in cinema history, the James Bond films have also provided a kind of secret history of the last 60 years as reflected in the changing persona of its lethal hero, from Sean Connery's sexy, cynical Cold Warrior in Dr. No (1962) to Daniel Craig's sexy, existential, troubled knight in a world of ambiguous threats and enemies in the upcoming Skyfall. The Somerville Theatre offers an opportunity to see the first six films from that first phase, which also includes George Lazenby's underrated single outing in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). This is a rare chance to see these films as they were originally intended, on the big screen in new 35 mm prints. And yes, it makes a difference. "The James Bond 007 Weekend" runs March 2-4 at the Somerville Theatre, 55 Davis Square, Somerville | $8; $5 seniors | 617.625.5700 or
