CineMuncie presents: Arsenic and Old Lace
December 27, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Our final screening of 2017 features a comedy as dark as Indiana winter days. It’s the 1944 screwball-noir (apparently that’s a thing) Arsenic and Old Lace.
Writer and notorious marriage detractor Mortimer Brewster (Cary Grant) falls for girl-next-door Elaine Harper (Priscilla Lane), and they tie the knot on Halloween. When the newlyweds return to their respective family homes to deliver the news, Brewster finds a corpse hidden in a window seat. With his eccentric aunts (Josephine Hull, Jean Adair), disturbed uncle (John Alexander), and homicidal brother (Raymond Massey), he starts to realize that his family is even crazier than he thought.
