The Heights Theater and Rediscover Movies have partnered for Power of Persistence: Unwavering Women in Cinema. The program features 5 films about women discovering and asserting their self worth when up against all odds. Each heroine faces unique but equally difficult circumstances created to either destroy them or their feelings of identity. Through confidence found within and the support of loved ones, the empowerment they find helps each to propel forward and change their lives on their own terms.
This Thursday, they’ll be screening Terence Young’s Wait Until Dark, a wonderful, intense thriller from 1967 starring Audrey Hepburn as blind woman and three men who are trying to retrieve a heroin filled doll from her apartment.
Audrey Hepburn received an Oscar nod for her performance, deserved, but equally powerful is Alan Arkin as a sadistic, murderous baddie.
Wait Until Dark plays this Thursday (May 11) at The Heights Theaters. Tickets available now.
Next up in the Power of Persistence series, is Fried Green Tomatoes, on Thursday, May 18 and The Color Purple on Thursday, May 25.
