Live showing: Sherlock Holmes and the Spider Woman


Thank you to everyone who joined us for this live film showing! Stay tuned for the next Tuned to Yesterday movie presentation.

Enjoy your favorite old time radio programs on the big screen, once again, with Tuned to Yesterday. We present Tuned to Yesterday: At the Movies with Sherlock Holmes and the Spider Woman, the 1944 mystery-thriller starring Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce and Gale Sondergaard. Based on the stories of Arthur Conan Doyle, this adventure follows Holmes' investigation of a series of so-called "pajama suicides." The cunning villain is as poisonous as a spider. 


Join us on Wednesday, July 30 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Clayton Opera House. A reception follows provided by the Clipper Inn. Admission is free and there are no advance ticket sales. The showing begins with an historical (and entertaining) presentation from Mark Lavonier, the host of our old time radio program Tuned to Yesterday. Learn how the film version came to be and how the original radio drama influenced its production. It's a fun night for enthusiasts of literature, radio and film.
