The annual favorite, Capitol Mystery Night returns with two great suspense classics.
First we're presenting The Lady Vanishes. This
early Alfred Hitchcock gem sparkles with suspense and wit. While
traveling through Europe, Iris Henderson (Margaret Lockwood) befriends
an elderly governess, Miss Froy (Dame May Whitty). When Miss Froy
disappears from the train, Iris suspects foul play-- but who would
kidnap an elderly governess? With the help of a charming musician
(Michael Redgrave) and a colorful cast of supporting actors, including
the great comedic duo Naunton Wayne and Basil Radford, Iris must solve
the mystery... before they all meet their final destination!
The second, Castle in the Desert, features
Charlie Chan as the guest of an eccentric historian and his wife of
notorious heritage. When another guest falls ill, Chan must linger to
find the cause, and hilarious detective antics ensue.
Also returning is our short mystery play, Death at the Drive-In. Solve the case for us to win fabulous prizes!
