Ever since the days of silent movies, Tucson has been a key location for Hollywood filmmakers. The western was the most popular genre, naturally, with Old Tucson serving as the shooting site for dozens of classic films, starring legends including John Wayne, Paul Newman and Kirk Douglas. But non-westerns were also filmed in Tucson, with filmmakers taking advantage of the beautiful desert environment and the unique architecture of the city itself. Enjoy a brief presentation by a School of Theatre, Film & Television faculty member just before the screening, as well as a student film short and Q&A opportunity with one of the actors from SLASHED!



Based on the award-winning first novel from Rosemary's Baby author Ira Levin, A Kiss Before Dying is a suspenseful thriller about a charming sociopath, played by Robert Wagner, who seduces the heir of a mining dynasty (Joanne Woodward) in an attempt to get his hands on her inheritance. This Hitchcockian film is particularly exciting for Tucson residents, as it was shot all over town, including downtown and campus locations!
