Showtime is 8 p.m., with a full vegetarian menu and discounts on craft beer and organic wine during the show. Tickets are $7.
Now you may recall that just a couple of weeks ago, I wrote of the Psychotronic Film Society’s special Mystery Screening of an obscure, unnamed B&W British thriller from the late 1950s at The Sentient Bean. That was part of the long-running organization’s weekly Wednesday night series of underappreciated feature films from around the globe. Well, unfortunately, that show had to be canceled because it fell on the night of the big snow and ice storm, and The Bean closed early that evening.
On Jan. 17, the PFS has rescheduled that great little Hitchcockian tale of a bizarre murder and the subsequent investigation. While the exact title will not be revealed before showtime (folks are encouraged to take a chance, buy a ticket and be pleasantly surprised), it can be said that it’s essentially unknown outside of Great Britain and barely remembered there, despite being a taut little shocker boasting terrific performances from all involved. See the full, uncut version just as it was seen in theaters almost 60 years ago.
