Strangers on a Train + Les Diaboliques (Double Bill)

Two strangers meet in a train carriage. One of them initiates a discussion striking a bargain about exchanging murders that will inspire both their lives.

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, script by Raymond Chandler, adapted from a novel by Patricia Highsmith.

“Almost a black comedy, Strangers on a Train also works as a bizarre courtship ritual, in which (Farley) Granger plays the straight man to (Robert) Walker’s flamboyant lunatic. As usual, Hitchcock takes particular glee in exploiting the plight of his protagonist. The dialogue sparkles.” Joshua Klein - 1001 movies to see before you die

The film currently has a score of 8.1 out of 10 from over 70,500 votes on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb).

Also showing is LES DIABOLIQUES

A headstrong mistress and a reserved wife conspire to murder the man they share, the tyrannical head of a seedy boarding school. As they are drawn deeper into the conspiracy, strange events begin to plague them …

“A major international hit in 1954, Les Diaboliques has lost little of its power to disturb, though dozens of films have borrowed its tricky storyline and made familiar the most shocking moments. Henri-Georges Clouzot directs with a grey cruelty that combines a nastily tangled storyline worthy of Hitchcock with three strong central performances and a marvellously seedy setting” Kim Newman - 1001 movies to see before you die

The film currently has a score of 8.2 out of 10 from over 29,900 votes on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb).

An approximate schedule is as follows:

18.30 Strangers on a Train begins
20.15 Strangers on a Train ends
20.40 Les Diaboliques begins
22.35 Les Diaboliques ends

Join us for one or both movies! The price for both films is £9.50 (this same price applies if you only wish to watch one film).

Tickets can be booked (here)

I will send out an e-mail with meeting details to all those who have RSVPed shortly before the event.

    Hitchkock never disappoints. Drama and suspense to the end, with great characterisation. Loved Babs!

    Haven't been to a Movie Meetup Group before, and am wondering how it works. Do we meet up beforehand, or do we just pile in to the cinema and hope whoever we're sitting next to is also from the group? :-)

    • Gavin

      Hi Sophie. We will meet beforehand. I will send around an e-mail later with details of where or when.

    Hi Gavin, I have a booked a ticket. I assume that's how it works? No group booking?
    Best
