Event Details

The Henry Miller Memorial Library presents
"Holiday with Hitch"


Dec. 10-14th at the Golden State Theatre* in Monterey
Tonight: Rear Window

It's wrong, we know, to spy on others, but after all,
aren't we always voyeurs when we go to the movies?

w/ an introduction TBA


Does the stress and anxiety of the holidays get you down?  Well the Henry Miller Memorial Library has an antidote: HOLIDAY WITH HITCH!  That's right: five nights, five classic films Tuesday: Vertigo |  Wednesday: North by Northwest  |  Thursday: Rear Window Friday (the 13th!): Rebecca  |  Last Night, Saturday Night: Psycho  from the Central Coast's adopted son, Alfred Hitchcock!  Because nothing spells relief from the holiday doldrums than psychosis, sexual obsession, cold-blooded horror, and of course, Jimmy Stewart.

Vertigo
On the heels of the successful Big Sur Short Film Finale, Reel Rock, and Big Lebowski screenings, we're doing it big: Five Nights of Classic Hitchcock Films, plus drinks, snacks, and selected guest speakers. Check back for updates on speakers and further Pinot Noir** pairings!


Heart O' The Mountain

One fine bottle of Pinot Noir from Alfred Hitchcock's own Winery, Heart O' The Mountain,
will be raffled off each night. (Hitch owned it 1940-74)



Doors @ 7 PM
Introductions @ 7.30 PM
Film @ 7.45PM (or a bit later depending on length of intro!)

Your generous donation makes this possible. Thanks!


Rear Window — Even scratchy and faded, "Rear Window" is one of the treasures of film. But the version we are showing, one night only, at the Golden State is a grand wonder because it's a new print -- reconstructed, remastered and made 'triumphantly delicious!' Since the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock classic is all about the voyeuristic instinct, the better the view, the more sensational the experience. A clean, sparkling "Rear Window" reveals more of the suggestive shadows, the subtleties, the sensuous undercurrents of the original. In short, the dirty business of spying and prying is more savory when the "Window" is grime free.       Peter Stack, SF Chronicle Staff Critic

Rear Window

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Nothing you see in a Monterey movie theatre all year can possibly come close to matching the experience of re-mastered* Hitchcock on the big screen. We are screening digitally remastered versions of the Master's greatest tales. If you have never seen Rebecca, or North By Northwest, or any of the other films for that matter, now's the time.

If your memories of these titles abound with images of scratchy prints or fuzzy video copies, it's time for a serious re-evaluation. Hitchcock, perhaps more than any other director, works best with an audience. Even if you know were the jumps occur in Rear Window, (or Psycho!) it's always fun to watch the newbies bounce around the theatre!

*Each film has been restored and remastered, vastly improving both audio and image.

* Yes, where does Alfred Hitchcock belong? On your plasma screen? At your local cineplex in the Mall?
No, of course not! Hitchcock belongs at the venerable and gorgeously creaky Golden State Theatre!

 

**Alfred Hitchcock was a well known wine lover - especially Pinot Noir (surprise!).
