Murder and Romance, This Weekend at the Hollywood

Five movies that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Murder mysteries and troubled romances are the topics of choice at Dormont’s this weekend.

Thursday’s $5 movie night begins at 7 p.m. with a Sherlock Holmes double feature: Roy William Neill’s “Dressed to Kill” (1946) starring Basil Rathbone and Thomas Bentley’s “Murder at the Baskervilles” (1937). Free small popcorn and soda for movie-goers!

Director Gerardo Naranjo’s “I’m Gonna Explode” hits the screen Friday and Saturday, as does Alex Cox’s 1986 film “Sid and Nancy,” which chronicles the unstable relationship of Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and girlfriend Nancy Spungen.

Naranjo’s 2008 film tells the story of two rebellious high schoolers who bond after one’s botched attempt to hang himself.

The weekend wraps up with a midnight showing of Jim Sharman’s “Rocky Horror Picture Show” (1975) on Saturday.
