Free movie at Lebanon mill

Scroggins Mill in Lebanon presents Movies at the Mill, a series of classic films on Thursday evenings in July and August at 280 W. Sherman St. in Lebanon.

The July 25 film will be “Wasp Woman,” a 1959 SciFi thriller about a scientist who develops a youth formula for a cosmetics queen from jelly taken from queen wasps, failing to anticipate the horrible side effects.

Movies are screened on the side of the mill, so shows begin when it gets dark, generally about 9 p.m. A food vendor will be available.

Admission is free but donations are appreciated.

‘Unexpected Guest’ at Albany theater

Albany Civic Theater is staging “The Unexpected Guest,” based on the book by Agatha Christie, through Aug. 3 at 111 First Ave. W.

Lost in the fog, a stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house only to find a man shot dead and his wife standing over him with a smoking gun. But the woman’s dazed confession is anything but convincing and the unexpected guest decides to help.

Remarkably, police clues point to a man who died two years previously but as the ghosts of a past wrong begin to emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives.

The real murderer turns out to be the greatest mystery of all.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. July 25-27 and Aug. 1-3, with a 2:30 p.m. matinee performance on Sunday, July 28.
