To Catch a Thief

Fri., July 28, 8:30 p.m.
,

The Saint Louis Art Museum (www.slam.org) has gone mad for fashion — perhaps you've noticed. With an ongoing exhibition about the Paris millinery trade's influence on Degas and Mucha's art, and another that explores the work of modern haute couture hat designer Stephen Jones, the museum has clothing on the brain. That thread is further worked in this year's Art Hill Film Series, with four films that feature Academy Award-nominated and -winning fashion. Tonight at 8:30 p.m., you can see Alfred Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief. This 1955 classic stars Cary Grant as John Robie, a retired jewel thief who now lives peacefully on the French Riviera. Grace Kelly plays opposite Grant as Frances Stevens, a young beauty with a fabulous jewel collection. When a rash of high-profile thefts are pinned on Robie, he and Frances team up to trap the culprit in the act. Food trucks and concession stands will be set up at the top of the hill and ready for business from 6 to 8:30 p.m., and local bands will play while you eat. Admission is free. free admission

Tomorrow

Through Aug. 25, 8 p.m.

French director Mélanie Laurent began thinking more and more about the future after the birth of her first child. With scientists predicting various ecological calamities in the not-so-distant future, what sort of world will tomorrow's children inherit? Joining friend and fellow activist Cyril Dion, Laurent sought out groups of people attempting to make small-scale changes in their communities. Their journey took them to ten countries from India to Finland, where they met people making real-world advances in food production, education and democracy. Their resulting film Tomorrow offers hope for the future and a reminder that the power to change will always rest with the people, not their governments. The Webster Film Series presents Tomorrow at 8 p.m. Friday through Tuesday (July 21 to 25) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; www.webster.edu/film-series). Tickets are $5 to $7. $5-$7
