Killer Hitchcock

Early Hitch picks up again at the KiMo Theatre with a collection of Alfred Hitchcock’s early spellbinding cinema. On Friday, Oct. 25, it’s 1948’s killer drama Rope starring James Stewart and Farley Granger. The tense, claustrophobic thriller concentrates on two intellectual young men who conspire to commit the “perfect” murder, strangling a classmate and hiding the body in their apartment. But that’s not the only offering in this lineup. November starts out with 1951’s Strangers on a Train (Nov. 1) and closes out with 1954’s Dial M for Murder (Nov. 22). That’s three shining examples of the fine art of murder for your viewing pleasure. All films in the series start at 8pm. Tickets are $7 general admission, $5 seniors. You can pick them up now at
