Monday Night Movies at the Heisey Museum
LOCK HAVEN — The Clinton County Historical Society will be hosting Monday Movie nights on the grounds of the Heisey Museum, 362 E. Water St., Lock Haven during the month of August.
The first film will play on Aug. 17 at 8 p.m. The Night of the Hunter is a 1955 Noir film starring Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters and Lillian Gish and directed by Charles Laughton. Mitchum is mesmerizing as an evil preacher who hunts his victims while singing “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”.
The second film will play on Aug. 31 at 8pm. The Egg and I is the story of Bob Macdonald (Fred McMurray) who on his wedding night informs his new wife (Claudette Colbert) that he has purchased a chicken farm and they will be moving to the country. This 1947 film introduced Ma (Marjorie Main) and Pa (Percy Kilbride) Kettle and their brood of 15 as the Macdonald’s rural neighbors. The Kettle family went on to be featured in nine more films.
Bring your lawn chairs and favorite beverage. We will supply the popcorn. Covid 19 precautions of masks and social distancing will be the order of the evening. Come out to enjoy a summer evening of film watching courtesy of your Clinton County Historical Society.
