In the evening of Saturday, October 20, the museum will host its fifth annual Halloween and Mourning Movie Night. Guests are invited to bring a picnic, blankets, chairs, and candy while enjoying classic scary movies at Heritage Square… if they dare. Special feature is The Manxman (1929) featuring European singer, film and stage actress, Anny Ondra. A fisherman and a rising young lawyer, who grew up as brothers, fall in love with the same girl. This romantic thriller is a rarely seen silent movie directed by the great Alfred Hitchcock, and was the last silent movie he ever made.
Beverages and popcorn will be available for purchase. Admission to the Halloween and Mourning Movie Night is free for Museum members and $10.00 for the general public. The gates will open at 6:30 p.m. for picnics with the show starting at dusk. Guests are also encouraged to wear warm clothing and bring blankets to sit on to watch the movie.
