Conspirators at the Normal Theater

The historic Normal Theater, located in Normal, Illinois, turns the spotlight on actress Hedy Lamarr with the documentary Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017), Ziegfeld Girl (1941), and the only movie in which she co-starred with Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet – the Warner Bros. spy drama The Conspirators (1944).

The Conspirators will be shown at 7 pm on Thursday, Jan. 4, and Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018.

Ticket prices are $7 for general admission and $5 for children age 13 and under, as well as students. Tickets may be purchased at the Normal Theater box office, which opens 30 minutes before the start of the show. Tickets may also be purchased on-line through the venue’s website.

The Normal Theater is located at 209 W. North Street, in the Uptown Normal area of Normal, Illinois.

Parking is available at several lots and garages near the theater, as well as on the streets near the Normal. Most convenient is the parking garage located at 122 W. Beaufort Street. After 6 pm every night and all day Sunday, parking is free. More information about parking, as well as directions to the theater, is available on the cinema’s website.

For more information, please contact the Normal Theater at 309-454-9720.

The Conspirators was the sixth of nine movies Peter Lorre made with Sydney Greenstreet. Their working relationship is chronicled in Stephen Youngkin’s Book The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre (2005). Although they rarely socialized away from the studio, they had great respect for each other’s talents – and in addition to their nine movies, also appeared together several times on radio. A complete list of Peter’s radio credits is included in the book’s Appendix.

The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre is available in both hard-back and soft-back editions, as well as the Kindle and Nook.
