San Gabriel , California 91776 United States

Visit the Mission Playhouse Sunday afternoon April 14th at 2:30pm for the next screening in their Silent Sundays series, ‘Blackmail.’ Directed by the ‘Master of Suspense’ Sir Alfred Hitchcock, this 1929 thriller is considered one of his earliest masterpieces. The film is a “beautifully crafted early exercise in nail biting suspense from Hitchcock’s pre-Hollywood canon” (tcm.com).

In this tale of murder and mayhem, a young woman named Alice White (Anny Ondra) visits the London flat of an artist to see his works of art. When he tries to take advantage of her, she kills him in self defense. What she doesn’t know is that someone saw her leave the scene of the crime. Scotland Yard Detective Frank Webber, Alice’s boyfriend, gets assigned the case. Will he figure out that it hits so close to home?

Live accompaniment on the Playhouse’s 1924 Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ will be provided by Donnie Rankin. Closing out this season’s Silent Sundays series is ‘The Black Pirate,’ a two color Technicolor swashbuckling adventure starring the ‘King of Hollywood’ Douglas Fairbanks on June 2nd.

This event is produced in partnership with the Los Angeles Theatre Organ Society, as part of the Mission Playhouse’s Community Engagement Program, Engage! Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at door, discounts for groups of 10+. Online/phone orders except group tickets are subject to additional fees and charges. Purchase tickets in person by visiting the Playhouse Box Office Tuesdays/Thursdays 12:00pm-6:00pm or day of show starting at 1:30pm. To learn more, visit missionplayhouse.org or call (626) 308-2865.
