Sunday, December 14, 2014 - 2:00pm to 4:45pm

Wait until Dark (1967)
Recently blinded Susy Hendrix (Audrey Hepburn) is learning to cope with her blindness. Her life takes a frightening turn when a group of criminals led by Roat (Alan Arkin) start terrorizing her, believing that she has the doll they used to smuggle heroin. Susy’s husband Sam (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.) had taken the doll as a favor for a woman he met on an international flight and brought it back to his apartment. Suzy is alone in her apartment and cut-off from the outside world, desperately trying to survive. The film was directed by Terence Young.
