The cinematheque of Qolhak Cineplex will have a single screening of “Death of Stalin,” a 2017 political satire directed and co-written by Armando Iannucci, on May 4, the venue’s website wrote.  
When the tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin dies in 1953, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to become the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the inept Georgy Malenkov, the wily Nikita Khrushchev and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrenti Beria. They bumble, brawl and backstab their way to the top.
Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Rupert Friend, Jason Isaacs, Michael Palin, Andrea Riseborough and Jeffrey Tambor are in the cast.
Cinematheque’s membership is required to watch the film.
