Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London's trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!

*Film: MURDER MYSTERY DOUBLE FEATURE

Saturday, September 24, 7:00 pm

First on screen, City in Darkness (1939), the timely entry in Fox's Charlie Chan series is set in Paris during the Munich Crisis of 1938. Charlie Chan (Sidney Toler) arrives in the City of Light for a reunion with his war buddies, only to find those lights dimmed by a city-wide blackout. The murder victim this time out is munitions manufacturer Douglas Dumbrille, who sells out his country by selling arms to an unnamed enemy.

In 70,000 Witnesses (1932), our "gimmick" murder mystery begins during a crucial college football game. Wally Clark (Johnny Mack Brown), the team's star player, is killed just before making the winning touchdown, as the titular 70,000 witnesses look on. Wally's teammate Buck Buchanan (Phillips Holmes), the younger brother of gambler Slip Buchanan (Lew Cody), had previously refused to drug Wally at Slip's bequest. Even so, when Wally drops dead, the leading suspect is poor Buck. It's up to bibulous reporter Johnny Moran (Charles Ruggles) and Wally's sister Dorothy Clark (Dorothy Jordan) to save Buck before local detective Dan McKenna (David Landau) railroads the boy into the electric chair.

Also, live on stage, a murder mystery play that YOU solve to win prizes from local businesses.

*Film: Universal Horror Double Feature
SON OF FRANKENSTEIN (1939) &
SON OF DRACULA (1943)

Saturday, October 29, 7:00 pm

Two SONS for the price of one!

Son of Frankenstein (1939) picks Universal's famed franchise off some years after the events of Bride of Frankenstein (1935).  Baron Wolf von Frankenstein (Basil Rathbone) transplants he and his family to his family's castle, where he's received poorly by the locals.  In a frenzy to save his father's reputation, he inadvertantly picks up the family business, reviving the Monster (Boris Karloff) his father created, with assistance from local ne'er-do-well Ygor (Bela Lugosi.)  Shadowing him every step of the way is Inspector Krogh (Lionel Atwill), who has a personal vendetta to settle with the Monster.  With an excellent ensemble cast and thrilling musical score by Hans Salter, Son of Frankenstein plays at a breakneck pace that never lets up!

Following that will be Son of Dracula, Universal's 1943 addition to the roll-call of films about the Trannsylvanian Count.  Count Alucard (Lon Chaney, Jr.) finds his way from Budapest to the swamps of the Deep South; his four nemeses are a medical doctor, a university professor, a jilted fiancé and the woman he loves.  Understated and underrated, this moody entry in the series wins points with Chaney in one of his best horror portrayals.
