Public Domain Movie Night: Whistle Stop

The first Tuesday of every month is Public Domain Movie Night at Bierock.

On Tuesday October 4th, Bierock will host a screening of Whistle Stop, an American film noir crime drama from 1946.

Starring Ava Gardner and based on a novel by Maritta M. Wolf, the film revolves around a young woman who returns to her hometown. She gets involved in a murderous love triangle.

The brief Turner Classic Movies synopsis sets the scene…

When Mary returns to Ashbury, the small town she left several years earlier, her first stop is the house she owns, where Molly Veech and her family now live. Before she left town, Mary was in love with Molly’s son Kenny, a loafer and a drunk, but was driven away by his lack of ambition.

Movie start time is at 8:00 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

Bierock’s full food and drink menu are available the night of the event.

Located at 2911 N. Sherman Ave., Bierock is part of the Northside TownCenter and across the street from Warner Park.
