The Roxy Theater is proud to present Essential Cinema, a monthly series of the most iconic and important films the artform has to offer.

Selected as one of the top 50 American films of all time by the prestigious American Film Institute, and considered by many critics to be Hitchcock's greatest film, this fast-paced thriller stars Oscar-winner Cary Grant as a Madison Avenue advertising exec who is mistaken for someone else and kidnapped by a group of international spies, headed by James Mason. After a hair-raising escape, he is framed for a murder he didn't commit and goes on the run with the elegant Eva Marie Saint. Famous for a wild plane attack and a harrowing chase across the faces of Mount Rushmore, this is quintessential Hitchcock. With Academy Award-winner Martin Landau as Mason's evil henchman, this film is the rare combination of action, suspense and humor.
