The popular theatrical version of Alfred Hitchcock's masterful film ... proves that anything movies can do, theater can do more hilariously. ... the show whizzes by to the audience's audible delight."

• Monochrome mind-bogglers: Alfred Hitchcock’s black & white films
May 7 - 13, 2010, at the Aero Theatre
Director Alfred Hitchcock (1899 – 1980) is widely regarded as the ultimate master of suspense. He directed more than 50 films over the course of six decades, and his command of both cinematic form and content, integrated into seamless motion picture entertainment, is virtually unrivaled. While Hitchcock’s hugely successful period of Technicolor spectaculars includes the classics VERTIGO, REAR WINDOW, NORTH BY NORTHWEST and THE BIRDS, many of his best films incorporate the elegant simplicity of black & white. From the early joys of THE 39 STEPS and THE LADY VANISHES, through taut mid-period suspense thrillers such as SPELLBOUND, SHADOW OF A DOUBT and STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, to the phenomenal success of the slasher classic PSYCHO, the Hitch proves that monochrome is a magnificent thing.
Please join us for a retrospective of Hitchcock’s black & white films, including screenings of REBECCA, LIFEBOAT, STAGE FRIGHT and SABOTEUR.
