Chills come to the home town!

The “Master of Suspense” is at it again! In “Shadow of a Doubt,” Alfred Hitchcock set and filmed the thriller in our own backyard…the idyllic town of Santa Rosa in 1943. You can even go see the house in which it was filmed.

Hitchcock described the acclaimed movie as his favorite, and the Oscar-nominated script was written by Thornton Wilder, Sally Benson, and Hitchcock’s own wife, Alma Reville.

Teresa Wright plays the teenager who wishes her beloved Uncle Charlie would come visit and liven things up…and that is exactly what happens…but not at all in the way she wants. Uncle Charlie, superbly played by Joseph Cotten, starts acting oddly…and then…

You will be on the edge of your seat as the story unfolds…Hitchcock style.

“Shadow of a Doubt” plays once only on Thursday, April 9 at 7:00. All seats are $8.00. Moviegoers are advised to get advance tickets at the box office or online, as shows may sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.

The Old West comes to life in Tombstone!

One of the greatest movie Westerns, John Ford’s My Darling Clementine is hardly the most accurate film version of the Wyatt Earp legend, but it is still one of the most entertaining. Henry Fonda stars as former lawman Wyatt Earp, who, after cleaning up Dodge City, arrives in the outskirts of Tombstone with his brothers Morgan (Ward Bond), Virgil (Tim Holt), and James (Don Garner), planning to sell their cattle and settle down as gentlemen farmers. Yet Wyatt, disgusted by crime and cattle rustling, eventually agrees to take the marshalling job until he can gather enough evidence to bring to justice the scurrilous Clanton clan, headed by smooth-talking but shifty-eyed Old Man Clanton (Walter Brennan). Almost immediately, Wyatt runs afoul of consumptive, self-hating gambling boss Doc Holliday (Victor Mature, in perhaps his best performance). When Doc’s erstwhile sweetheart, Clementine (Cathy Downs) comes to town, Earp is immediately smitten. However, Doc himself is now involved with saloon gal Chihauhua (Linda Darnell). The tensions among Wyatt, Doc, Clementine, and Chihauhua wax and wane throughout most of the film, leading to the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral, with Wyatt and Doc fighting side-by-side against the despicable Clantons.
