ADDITIONAL SCREENINGS ADDED! Our five-film tribute to the films of Alfred Hitchcock continues with his thoroughly entertaining – and surprisingly humorous – 1959 thriller NORTH BY NORTHWEST, screening Saturday August 11 at 2:30pm, 5:30pm, and 8pm, and Sunday August 13 at 5:30pm and 8pm!
This classic suspense film finds New York City ad executive Roger O. Thornhill (Cary Grant) pursued by ruthless spy Phillip Vandamm (James Mason) after Thornhill is mistaken for a government agent. Hunted relentlessly by Vandamm’s associates, the harried Thornhill ends up on a cross-country journey, meeting the beautiful and mysterious Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint) along the way. Soon Vandamm’s henchmen close in on Thornhill, resulting in a number of iconic action sequences – including the famous cornfield plane chase, and the film’s much-spoofed climax upon one of America’s most famous landmarks.
