The sun was just about gone and the moon was just starting to glow as Bridgeville resident Hannah Duttenhoeffer sat in Cook School Park munching popcorn she had brought with her.

Popcorn is a movie-watching must for a lot of people, and Duttenhoeffer was one of about 30 people who had assembled in the park at dusk on a recent Friday night to watch “To Catch a Thief.” The 1955 romantic thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring an impossibly debonair Cary Grant and impeccably beautiful Grace Kelly was going to be shown on a screen set up by a fence at the end of a grassy field, a Blu-ray projector placed before it.
