Vertigo: Classic Tuesdays with John Farr. Join us for a new series featuring outstanding classic films on select Tuesday evenings once a month. John Farr , Founder of the Playhouse and Creator of bestmoviesbyfarr.com , will introduce and give a short talk about each film before the lights go down. After screenings, guests are invited to join him for “Farr @The Bar” – drinks and casual conversation following the film in the Playhouse Cafe.
Considered by many to be director Alfred Hitchcock’s greatest achievement, Leonard Maltin gives Vertigo four stars, hailing it as “a genuinely great motion picture.” Set among San Francisco’s renowned landmarks, James Stewart is brilliant as Scottie Ferguson, an acrophobic detective hired to shadow a friend’s suicidal wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak). After he saves her from drowning in the bay, Scottie’s interest shifts from business to fascination with the icy, alluring blonde. When he finds another woman remarkably like his lost love, the now obsessed detective must unravel the secrets of the past to find the key to his future.
Hitchcock’s acclaimed Vertigo will be shown in a beautiful 4k restoration.
