Eureka Theater Summer of Suspense: Hitchcock’s “Shadow of a Doubt”

Come to Eureka Theater for their Summer of Suspense, where a variety of Alfred Hitchcock films will be played throughout the Summer. The theater will play Hitchcock's "Shadow of Doubt" on Saturday, August 5

Shadow of a Doubt is a 1943 American psychological thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and starring Teresa Wright and Joseph Cotten. Written by Thornton Wilder, Sally Benson, and Alma Reville, the film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Story for Gordon McDonell.

Charlotte “Charlie” Newton lives with her parents in Santa Rosa, when charming and sophisticated Charles “Uncle Charlie” Oakley comes to visit at short notice. Charlie slowly realizes Oakley is in fact a wanted man, the “Merry Widow” killer, something Oakley soon recognizes.

In 1991, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. The film was also Alfred Hitchcock’s favorite of all of his films.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the movie starts at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets available at the door and are $10 for adults and $5 for 12 and under.
