SF Sketchfest welcomes screen legend Alan Arkin back to the festival to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of this classic Cold War comedy. When a Soviet submarine, commanded by Lieutenant Rozanov (Arkin, in an Academy Award-nominated role), accidentally runs aground in a quaint New England town, it causes ridiculous mass hysteria among the townspeople. This acclaimed award-winning film tells a tale that is strangely relevant even in 2016. Directed by Norman Jewison, the film also stars Carl Reiner, Eva Marie Saint and Jonathan Winters. Alan Arkin, who started as an improv comedian in the Second City troupe and went on to become a major star of the stage and screen, will sit down for an extended conversation with Boulder International Film Festival producer Ron Bostwick after the screening. Arkin's many screen roles include "The In-Laws," "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter," "Wait Until Dark," "Edward Scissorhands," "Argo," and "Little Miss Sunshine," for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. $25 All Ages
