THE LOCKET / THE WINDOW
May 18 only
Just before his wedding, the bridegroom hears an incredible tale that suggests his beautiful bride might be dangerously disturbed and possibly even a murderess! An intricate tale of death and deception that ingeniously and famously turns the time-honored flashback convention inside out. Visually sumptuous and unforgettable. Starring Laraine Day, Brian Aherne, Robert Mitchum, Gene Raymond, Ricardo Cortez. Photographed by Nicholas Musuraca. Directed by John Brahm. In B&W. 85 mins. 1946.
At 8:00pm only!
The “boy who cried wolf” scenario is stretched to unbearably suspenseful limits when a nine year old kid with a hyper-active imagination witnesses a brutal murder through the apartment window across the way. Naturally, with the boy’s reputation for fabricating tall tales, no one believes him. Except the killers, of course. Exceptionally exciting to the very end. Starring Barbara Hale, Arthur Kennedy, Paul Stewart, Ruth Roman, Bobby Driscoll. Photographed by Robert De Grasse. From a story by Cornell Woolrich. Directed by Ted Tetzlaff. In B&W. 73 mins. 1949.
At 6:30pm and 9:45pm
