Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Have you ever driven a car blindfolded at 150 miles an hour? Neither have we.
Join us on Friday, February 16th at 7pm for the classic Alfred Hitchcock film STRANGERS ON A TRAIN. We’ll be pairing this legendary psychological thriller with the H&H 50’s Party Punch cocktail, a nod to the two minds that mingled to create this classic, Patricia Highsmith and Alfred Hitchcock were both preoccupied by the dark side of the human psyche. Many directors have attempted film adaptations of her novels, but few have succeeded as Hitchcock did when he brought the story of the STRANGERS ON A TRAIN to the big screen. This specialty cocktail is made with Appleton Rum, Old Forester Bourbon, pear liqueur, pineapple, lemon, sugar, vanilla and seltzer.
Admission is $8. Drink prices vary.
About the Film
A psychopathic man tries to forcibly persuade a tennis star to agree to his theory that two strangers can get away with murder by submitting to his plan to kill the other’s most-hated person.
What could be better than a team-up between the Master of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock and masterful writer of crime fiction Raymond Chandler..? It’s a surprise that, upon its release in 1951, STRANGERS ON A TRAIN failed to make much of an impact with critics; however, the film has since come to be regarded as on of Hitchcock’s many masterpieces and has been selected to for preservation in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry.
Along with the specialty cocktail, we will have a full menu of wine, local beer and local ciders.
