Description

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 21 DOUBLE FEATURE

FRENZY 7:00 As a serial rapist/strangler dubbed "The Necktie Killer" roams the streets of London, Dick Blaney (Jon Finch), an innocent man whose ex-wife was one of the victims, is accused of the crime and arrested. After escaping from prison, Blaney becomes determined to get revenge – unaware that the madman he seeks is a friend of his. Filming in his native England for the first time since the 1950s, Alfred Hitchcock's darkly funny and sexually charged shocker co-stars Barry Foster, Alec McCowen, and Billie Whitelaw. (1972, 116 min, 35mm)

+ THE BOSTON STRANGLER 9:05
Taking a dark turn, Tony Curtis gives one of his best performances as the mentally unstable Albert DeSalvo, a serial killer who terrorized Boston, murdering many women, and defyied the efforts of a special division to catch him. Richard Fleischer (10 Rillington Place) directs this arresting adaptation of Gerold Frank’s true-crime book, utilizing split-screen and multi-pane imagery for maximum visual assault. Henry Fonda and George Kennedy co-star as the head investigators assigned to track down the killer. (1968, 116 min, DCP ‘Scope)
