ENJOY A FREE POPCORN AND AN ORGAN CONCERT ON OUR “BIGGEST LITTLE
WURLITZER” ONE HALF-HOUR BEFORE THE MOVIE BEGINS AS OUR FILM NOIR
SUMMER DRAWS TO A CLOSE!
Directed by Billy Wilder and co-written by Wilder and Raymond Chandler (who has an uncredited cameo in the film), Double Indemnity is a 1944 American crime film noir classic starring Fred MacMurray as an insurance salesman, Barbara Stanwyck as a provocative housewife accused of killing her husband, and Edward G. Robinson as a claims adjuster whose job is to find false claims.
Double Indemnity is cited as having set the standard for film noir. Deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the U.S. Library of Congress in 1992, Double Indemnity was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. Please NOTE: there is no short accompanying this presentation.
Join us on Irving Street outside the theatre for a great night of music with Terron Brooks and The Company Men! Be sure to bring your chair and come early to secure your spot! Presented by Rahway Mayor Raymond A. Giacobbe and the Rahway City Council.
