Tuesday Night Classics
The Tuesday Night Classics series is dedicated to showing popular favorites and forgotten gems from the height of early 20th century film-making. Generally on the first and third Tuesday of the month and now with an additional matinee the same week either on Saturday or Sunday. This is a great way to experience a film from the Golden Age of Hollywood in a theater from that era. Friends of the Normal Theater receive free admission.
Bad Day at Black Rock
When John J. Macreedy (Spencer Tracy), a one-armed war veteran, arrives in the small desert town of Black Rock, he's not greeted warmly. Searching for a man named Komoko, Macreedy is met with disdain by virtually every local, including the resident thug, Hector David (Lee Marvin), and the imposing Reno Smith (Robert Ryan). As Macreedy's investigation deepens, hostility turns to violence -- and to imminent danger for the mysterious and inquisitive stranger. NR / 82 min.
