The Night of the Hunter (1955)

As part of our semi-regular Free Film Series, BST will screen Charles Laughton’s 1955 masterpiece THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER on Monday July 22 at 7:30pm. A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy tale, it stars a sublimely sinister Robert Mitchum as a traveling preacher whose nefarious motives for marrying a fragile widow are uncovered by her terrified young children. Graced by images of eerie beauty and a sneaky sense of humor, this ethereal, expressionistic American classic is cinema’s most unique and inimitable rendering of the battle between good and evil. No admission charge; just show up and enjoy the film!
