Lorre at the Darkside Cinema in Corvallis, OR

Peter Lorre fans in the Corvallis, Oregon, area will enjoy a rare opportunity on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 – a free screening of Double Confession (1950) at the Darkside Cinema, Corvallis’ only independent movie theater. It’s this week’s feature at the venue’s Community Movie Night, held every Tuesday.

Introduced by curator Ygal Kaufman, who is a fan of Peter's and classic movies, the program begins at 7 pm and includes short subjects, cartoons, newsreels, and commercials originally shown when the feature was first released.

Admission is free for everyone. Donations are accepted – and benefit the renovations to the Darkside Cinema. Movie snacks are available for purchase.

The Darkside Cinema is located at 215 Southwest 4th Street in Corvallis, Oregon.

Parking is available on the street in front of the cinema.

For more information, please call the Darkside Cinema at (415) 994-2188.

Long thought lost, Double Confession was for many years on the British Film Institute’s list of “The 75 Most Wanted” movies. But in 2013, Renown Pictures Ltd released the movie to all-regions DVD from a pristine 35mm print.

In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, Stephen D. Youngkin recounts the making of Double Confession, including an interview with the film’s director Ken Annakin.

The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre is available in hard-bound and paperback editions, as well as eBooks for the Kindle and Nook.
