As part of Bob Hope Theater's Classic Film series, the film, "The Man Who Knew Too Much," will be shown on June 16 at 7 p.m.

The 1956 film was directed by Alfred Hitchock and stars James Stewart and Dorris Day. In the movie, Dr. Ben McKenna, his wife, Jo, and their son, Hank, are on a touring holiday of Africa when they meet the mysterious Louis Bernard on a bus. The next day Bernard is murdered in the local marketplace, but before he dies he manages to reveal details of an assassination about to take place in London. Fearing that their plot will be revealed, the assassins kidnap Hank in order to keep the McKenna's silent. Ben and Jo go to London and take matters into their own hands.

The Bob Hope Theater is located at 242 E. Main St. in Stockton. Tickets costs $4 to $8. For more information, call 337-HOPE.
