Hello Maplephiles,

By the time you read this, there probably will still be a lot of noise surrounding what happened with the election. I hope that it will soon be time to move on and start thinking about fun things again, but just because we had the election probably does not mean the virus decided to suddenly go away. I thought maybe the Blue Moon might end the pandemic, but sadly I was wrong.

I watched Borat Subsequent Moviefilm with the Little Projectionist this past weekend. I donít know what I liked better, the movie or the hysterical laughing of a 14 year-old boy. I have to say that I laughed so hard that I had to stop watching. I was exhausted and had nothing left about halfway through. I can only imagine what it would have been like in a movie theater.

Ruth's Ramblings...
We have a new movie opening this week called Let Him Go starring Kevin Costner and Diane Lane. Touted as a "floridly gripping thriller" by one film critic, it looks really good.

During the summer we had an ongoing conversation in this newsletter about a Hitchcock Film Festival. Well, based on that we are going to feature five of films from the master of suspense this week. The schedule changes daily, so you will want to look at each day to see when your favorite is playing. Celebrating Hitchcock: Part 1 will begin Friday, November 6th and continue through Thursday, November 12th with the following films:
Marnie (1964), Vertigo (1958), The Birds (1963), Rear Window (1954), and Psycho (1960). Iím especially happy that we can feature the late, great Sean Connery in Marnie this week. Tickets for these films are $5 for matinee and $7 for evening shows.

This is the 45th anniversary of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) and we are playing it on Sunday.

Secret Cinema: Old Hollywood is this Thursday, 11/5. Ken Droz is excited to help welcome you back. All I will tell you about the film from the Ď60s is that it got 98% on Rotten Tomatoes and it was a financial success when released. Seating is limited so make sure to get your tickets. Hope to see you there!

Marnie (1964) (NR)
Sean Connery • Tippi Hedren - 129 minutes
Poster Condemned as being a disappointing and unworthy Alfred Hitchcock effort at the time of its release, Marnie has since grown in stature; it is still considered a lesser Hitchcock, but a fascinating one. Tippi Hedren plays Marnie, a compulsive thief who cannot stand to be touched by any man. She also goes bonkers over the sight of the color red. Her new boss, Mark Rutland (Sean Connery) is intrigued by Marnie -- to such an extent that he blackmails her into marriage when he stumbles onto her breaking into his safe. Rutland is in his own way as sick as his wife because of his fetishist desire to cohabit with a thief. After innumerable plot twists and turns, Marnie is cured by a facile but mesmerizing flashback sequence involving her ex-hooker mother (Louise Latham). Among the critical carps aimed at Marnie was the complaint that the studio-bound sets -- particularly the waterfront locale where the film ends -- were tacky and artificial; curiously, this seeming carelessness adds to the queasy, off-setting mood that Hitchcock endeavored to sustain. Even when the direction seems to falter, the film is buoyed by the driving musical score of Bernard Herrmann (his last for Hitchcock). Among the supporting actors in Marnie are Mariette Hartley as a secretary and Bruce Dern as a sailor; twelve years later, Dern would star in Hitchcock's final film, Family Plot.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
