“In the Heat of the Night” Film Screening

April 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for a film screening and discussion with our movie group: the Merrill Film Society.

April 24th @ 7 pm: In the Heat of the Night

To follow up film noir The Maltese Falcon we will be watching a classic of the neo-noir genre: In The Heat of the Night.
This 1967 film stars Sidney Poitier as a black detective from Philadelphia who finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation in Mississippi. Rod Steiger plays the white police chief who eventually works with Poitier’s character to solve the case. The film was critically acclaimed from the moment of its release and has remained a foundational element of the neo-noir genre and of post-60’s American culture. Don’t miss this one.
