Sunday Matinees: Hitchcock
Sunday, March 20, 2011
1:30 PM-3:30 PM
Auditorium (3rd Floor)
Watch these commonly overlooked Hitchcock greats on the big screen this winter. We will show two of his movies per month through March at $2 each in our auditorium theater at 1:30pm. Attend every show and watch the last one free!* All charges offset the cost of our film license -- exact change is much appreciated!
3/20: STAGE FRIGHT (1950) NR: 110 min.
Alfred Hitchcock takes Selwyn Jepson's novel, preserves all the thrills from the page, and adds a dash of his own. Eve Gil (Jane Wyman), a drama student studying in London, learns that a friend, John Cooper (Richard Todd), has been implicated in the death of the husband of his lover, actress Charlotte Inwood (Marlene Dietrich). John has a plan to prove himself innocent, but needs Eve's help, not to mention her talent. Can they pull it off?
*In case of inclement weather, please check our website or your local news source for cancellations. Time permitting, canceled movies will be added to the end of the series.
