Ooh, classic film fans are going to love this. The Crown Uptown Theatre in Wichita is celebrating the 120th birth date of Alfred Hitchcock, master of suspense and director of some of the coolest movies ever, by hosting a Hitchcock film series!
The theatre recently installed a movie wall and they’re putting it to good use by showing Monday night movies for $6.
The Alfred Hitchcock Film Series at Crown Uptown is for all ages. The series will include some of Hitchcock’s best known and most-loved films, including:
Psycho on August 5
“Psycho tells the story of Marion Crane, who steals $40,000 from her employer. She leaves her home in Phoenix, Arizona and ends up at the Bates Motel in Fairvale, California. The motel is run by mother-fixated Norman Bates.”
The Birds on
August 12 (Due to a scheduling conflict, The Birds has been rescheduled for Monday, September 9.)
“A wealthy San Francisco socialite pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town that slowly takes a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people. Melanie Daniels is the modern rich socialite, part of the jet-set who always gets what she wants.”
Rear Window on August 19
“Professional photographer L.B. “Jeff” Jefferies breaks his leg while getting an action shot at an auto race. Confined to his New York apartment, he spends his time looking out of the rear window observing the neighbors. He begins to suspect that a man across the courtyard may have murdered his wife. Jeff enlists the help of his high society fashion-consultant girlfriend Lisa Freemont and his visiting nurse Stella to investigate.”
Vertigo on August 26
Detective John Ferguson (played by James Stewart) has a paralyzing fear of heights that plays into this twisty, mind-bending plot of this Hitchcock classic.
All shows start at 7 p.m.
