I remember seeing this movie as a child in the 80s so it's probably a 70's movie.

A guy picks up a hitchhiker and ends up murdering him/her (can't remember), to dispense of the body he puts her in a wheel-chair, puts a large hat and sunglasses on her to disguise the fact she is a asleep and goes to a movie theatre. In the movie theatre when dark he swaps the victim out of the chair and wheels himself out wearing the hat and glasses.

Wow, that sounds clever (and devious)! But I have no idea what the movie is. – BrettFromLA Mar 28 '14 at 21:46
At first it sounded like The Hitcher (1986) until you started talking about the wheel chair. – druciferre Mar 31 '14 at 0:36

I think I got it: The Australian thriller End Play from 1976 about two brothers, one of them wheelchair-bound, suspected in the murders of blonde hitchhikers. One hitchhiker (who wore a large hat) is found in a cinema and the wheelchair is used to dispose of her. You can briefly see the killer in a blonde wig and sunglasses setting the body up in this trailer around 1:14. There's also a longer trailer available.

Sounds like, The Freeway Killer? Movie made about the true story of a guy from California (William Bonin) who picked up hitchhikers...young men and boys, and raped/murdered them..late 70's into the 80's. Hope this helps!

I looked this movie up - looks like it was made in 2010, the film I'm after was around in the 80s – Bacon Apr 3 '14 at 20:01
