20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Buy Tickets


(1954) dir Richard Fleischer w/Kirk Douglas, James Mason, Paul Lukas, Peter Lorre [127 min; 35mm]
Douglas stars as the irreverent sailor who, along with a professor (Lukas) and his assistant (Lorre), becomes the prisoner of an idealistic but misguided genius – Captain Nemo (Mason) aboard his fantastical submarine, The Nautilus.

“This is one of the great movie adventures, fully deserving its canonisation in Disney World.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

“As fabulous and fantastic as anything he has ever done in cartoons is Walt Disney’s ‘live action’ movie made from Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.” – Bosley Crowther, New York Times (12/24/1954)
