The 1954 film “Suddenly” will screen Oct. 7 as part of Chestnut Hill Film Group’s ongoing series, “Tuesday Nights at the Movies.”

The President of the United States is traveling by train to the small, quiet town of Suddenly, California. Three assassins posing as FBI agents arrive in the town and take a family hostage in their home. In the home, which is atop a hill and overlooking the train station, the assassins wait for the arrival of the President and ready for the kill. With no time to spare, the town’s sheriff, and the family being held hostage, must stop the assassins before it’s too late.

Directed by Lewis Allen, the film stars Frank Sinatra, Sterling Hayden and James Gleason.

The movie begins at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7, at Woodmere Art Museum. Doors open at 6:30. Admission is free, although donations are recommended.
