“To Catch A Thief” - Member Appreciation Night: Free admission for members. Refreshments of French wine and cheese by Eventide Specialties: 6 p.m. Sorry, no general admission tickets will be sold for this show.
What’s better for a summer movie than a romantic thriller with a dashing guy and a beautiful girl driving around in a 1950s convertible on the French Riviera? Especially when it’s an Alfred Hitchcock film, with Grace Kelly and Cary Grant! A jewel thief is at large on the Riviera, and all evidence points to a famed retired cat burglar played by Cary Grant. He pleads innocence, and vows to find out who's been copying his distinctive style. With the reluctant aid of detective John Williams, Grant launches his investigation by keeping tabs on the wealthiest vacationers on the Riviera, including heavily bejeweled Jessie Royce Landis, who is as brash and outspoken as her daughter Grace Kelly is quiet and demure. But "still waters run deep," as they say, and soon Kelly is amorously pursuing the far-from-resistant Grant. Part of Kelly's attraction to Grant is the possibility that he is the thief; the prospect of danger really turns this gal on.
