Description

FilmScene is excited to partner with the Iowa City Downtown District and the Bijou Film Board for a series of outdoor films in Iowa City's Northside neighborhood.

Join us after sunset on the 200 block of N. Linn Street for this free series - see below for event and safety guidelines.

A 15 minute preshow will begin at sunset (approximately 7:56) with the film to follow.

"One of Hitchcock's inspired audience-participation films: watching it, you feel titillated, horrified, and, ultimately, purged."
- New Yorker

The story of a recuperating news photographer (James Stewart) who believes he has witnessed a murder. Confined to a wheelchair after an accident, he spends his time watching the occupants of neighboring apartments through a telephoto lens and binoculars and becomes convinced that a murder has taken place.
