    In Honor of Women's History Month: A Film Noir Double-Feature Highlighting the Works of Pioneering Director Ida Lupino

    Matinee at 2:00 pm. Evening show at 7:00 pm. * Both showings consist of both films.

    “The Hitch-Hiker” (1953): Considered by many, including Lupino herself, to be her best film. Two Americans played by Edmond O’Brien and Frank Lovejoy are vacationing in Mexico when their lives are taken over by a psychopathic serial killer played by Emmett Myers. A fascinating film noir study in character.

    “The Bigamist” (1953): Directed by and starring Ida Lupino with Joan Fontaine, Edmund Gwenn and Edmond O’Brien. A traveling salesman emotionally distanced from his wife meets another woman while traveling and eventually they marry. He then leads a double life as a husband to two women until his first wife wants to adopt a child and the adoption agency begins to investigate his private life.
