Cult Classic Movie Night’s Summer Road Series Part II: The Hitch-Hiker

Cult Classic Movie Night's Summer Road Series Part II: The Hitch-Hiker

Friday, August 9

8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Summertime is the best time to hit the road, Jack… or watch a Cult Classic about hitting the road!  Join us for the second installment in our July/August “Summer Road Series” with The Hitch-Hiker (1953/Not Rated/71 min/Crime, Drama, Film Noir)!

summary: Based on a true story, two fishermen pick up a hitchhiker and get more than they bargained for on a trip to Mexico.  The Hitch-Hiker was the first American mainstream film noir directed by a woman and was selected in 1998 for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.”

Stay after the movie for our always lively Film Discussion where we’ll share trivia and have fun prizes!
