Film Noir Hitchcock Weekend: Strangers on a Train
July 22 @ 8:00 pm
ORGAN CONCERT ON OUR “BIGGEST LITTLE WURLITZER” ONE HALF-HOUR BEFORE THE MOVIE BEGINS!
Produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock, 1951’s Strangers on a Train is a psychological thriller film noir starring Farley Granger, Ruth Roman, and Robert Walker. Based on author Patricia Highsmith’s novel of the same name, the film tells the story of two strangers who meet on a train, one of whom suggests that they “exchange” murders so that neither will be caught. Interestingly, Strangers on a Train received mixed reviews when it was released but is now regarded as one of Hitchcock’s finest films.
Enjoy the Bugs Bunny short “The Case of the Missing Hare” before the film!
