August 5 Silent & Classic Movie Night

Join us Saturday, August 5 to watch Alfred Hitchcock’s “Young and Innocent” from 1937. The film “is a treat for any Hitchcock fan and full of evocative moments that look ahead to such future Hitchcock films as The Birds.” Although the film is based around a fugitive trying to prove his innocence, it is much more about the evolving relationship between the two main characters.

Bring your chairs, blankets, and picnics and join us. Projected onto the side our historic boxcar, enjoy the film amid our historic structures. Beverages, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase.

Admission: $10 for adults, $5 for children (12 and under), and Free for museum members.

Gates open at 7:30 p.m. and film will begin at 8:15 p.m. (or as darkness allows)
