On Sunday, June 19th, we present a 35mm screening of, THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (1955)

Sunday Essentials is a series of single-feature 35mm presentations highlighting classics from all genres, with themed trailers and introductions by authors and film scholars, providing context and insight into the films screened.

Charles Laughton only directed one feature film, and boy, was it a doozy.

We're Incredibly proud to present his singular vision, THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (1955), starring Robert Mitchum in an image-shattering portrayal of a con man whose religious zealotry doesn’t extend to every commandment, in his malevolent pursuit of two children who may hold the secret to a hidden $10,000 stash. A black and white suspense classic that delves deeply into the dark heart of greed and fanaticism.

As part of our Essentials commitment to cinema education and exploration, we’ll be joined onscreen for an introduction by Preston Neal Jones, author of HEAVEN & HELL TO PLAY WITH: THE FILMING OF THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, giving insight into the film and its production.

Gates open at 6pm. Showtime at Sundown.

General Ticket: $8 (per person) - General+Overnight: $16 (per person)
