Tyler Public Library Kicks Off ‘Classic Mystery Movies’ Summer Series [VIDEO]
If you like a good mystery movie, you’ll want to check out “Classic Mystery Movies” night at the Tyler Public Library. The Tyler Public Library will be bringing classic movies to the big screen all summer long during the Library’s Texas Film Festival.This first movie showing is set for this Sunday, June 10, at 2 p.m. The free movie series centers around the summer’s reading theme “Get a Clue . . . At Your Library” and will feature some of the great mysteries and detective movies from past decades.
This is what the Library Programming Associate Evelyn McLane had to to say about the event:
“This is a great opportunity for film buffs to see some of their favorite movies again,” It also gives teens and young adults a chance to discover these classic films for the first time.”
“We’ve included movies from the 30s to the 80s,” said McLane, “And just for fun, we chose to mix it up with dramas, comedies and spoofs of the classic mystery clichés.”
The first movie this Sunday is a great mystery from 1985, “Clue.” The movie is a parody of murder mysteries based on the popular board game. The movie has awesome stars who play six guests invited to a strange house where they must cooperate with the staff to solve a murder mystery. The movie stars Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Lesley Ann Warren, Christopher Lloyd and Martin Mull.
You’ll enjoy movies like, “Double Indemnity,” “Murder by Death,” “The Thin Man,” “The Maltese Falcon,” “Deathtrap,” “Rear Window,” “Without a Clue,” “Murder on the Orient Express” and Pink Panther’s “A Shot in the Dark.”
All movies will be shown on the big screen in Taylor Auditorium at the Tyler Public Library, 201 S. College in downtown Tyler. All movies are free and open to the public.
