Escape to a simpler era with The Maltese Falcon

If you yearn for a simpler era, when men wore fedoras and everybody had a motive, check out The Maltese Falcon. The film stars Humphrey Bogart as private investigator Sam Spade, hot on the case of a mysterious, jewel-encrusted bird statue. Mary Astor plays the dame. Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet also star in this whodunit based on a book by Dashiell Hammett. The directing debut of John Huston, this flick tops lists of the best film noir pictures ever made. Refreshments provided. 2-4pm. Wednesday, February 22.
