Description

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 28 DOUBLE FEATURE

VERTIGO 2:45, 7:00
Early-retired San Francisco policeman James Stewart is asked to follow a friend’s wife who is prone to mysterious absences. As his detecting soon turns to obsession, the film builds to dizzying heights of duplicity, derangement, and delusion. Alfred Hitchcock’s immortal masterpiece is his most powerful and personal work, and for decades has been challenging viewers to decode its multiple layers of symbolism. Co-starring Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes and Bernard Herrmann’s indelible music score. NOTE: We will be screening a rare, pre-restoration print from the film’s 1983 reissue. (1958, 129 min, 35mm)

+ HIGH ANXIETY 5:05, 9:20
Dr. Richard Thorndyke (Mel Brooks) arrives as new administrator of the Psychoneurotic Institute for the Very, VERY Nervous to discover some suspicious goings-on. When he's framed for murder, Dr. Thorndyke must confront his own psychiatric condition, "high anxiety," in order to clear his name. The thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock are the target of Mel Brooks’ lowbrow but loving spoof with Brooks regulars Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman, Harvey Korman, Ron Carey, and Dick Van Patten providing hilarity at every turn. (1977, 94 min, DCP)
