THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING YOU: ALFRED HITCHCOCK FILM FESTIVAL 
Mondays, August 2—30 (except August 16), 6:30 pm

Do mysteries excite you? Stories of espionage, maybe? Abduction? How about…murder?
 
One of the most popular & critically-acclaimed film directors of all time, Alfred Hitchcock created exquisite horror films for thrill-seeking audiences. “Give them pleasure,” he said. “The same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare.”

Join staffer Chris Boerger for a collection of classic thrillers from the master of suspense. 
  • August 2: The Lady Vanishes (1938)
    A socialite searches for a missing woman whom fellow train passengers claim never existed. 
  • August 9: Shadow of a Doubt (1943)
    A young woman suspects her beloved uncle is a serial killer. Hitchcock’s favorite of his American films. 
  • August 16: “Taking a week off. Not doing so would be murder.”
  • August 23: Notorious (1946)
    Three lives become entangled during an espionage operation involving Nazis, uranium, and South America. Starring Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman.
  • August 30: Rear Window (1954)
