This week the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse will bring back its popular off-season film offering, Monday Movies, with host Jamie Alley from Island Entertainment Video. This weekly cinematic treat kicks off Monday, Nov. 2, with the film “Rope,” a 1948 American psychological crime thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock, based on the 1929 play of the same name by Patrick Hamilton. The film concerns two implicit homosexual college chums, played by Farley Granger and John Dall. Their heads filled with Nietzschean philosophy by their kindly professor James Stewart, Granger and Dall kill a third friend just for the thrill of it. Film begins at 7:30 pm at the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse. $5, cash only, at the door.
