So please, if you’re feeling sick, just write us at community@secretmovieclub.com and we’ll offer you complimentary tickets to a future screening when you’re healthy. Let’s all do our part to beat this thing so we can go back to the complete movie going experience!

Let the debate begin! Not because there's an answer but because the debate sharpens one's appreciation for the merits of both these all-time Hitchcock masterworks.

First up is this programmer's favorite Hitchcock (spoiler!) and also in this programmer's top 10 of all time: Rear Window. Photographer LB Jeffries (a top of his game Jimmy Stewart), restless in a wheelchair and leg cast, gets to spying on all the other residents across the courtyard in his apartment complex. When he begins to suspect that the Husband directly across the way has murdered his wife, his frustrated girlfriend Lisa (a jaw dropping and fierce Grace Kelly) decides the only way to confirmed bachelor Jeff's heart is to become his co-detective.

Rear Window is one of those movies where you daren't touch a frame or line or scene or moment. Every single second of this movie crackles with cinema, wonderful chemistry, mind blowing shots & sequences, all building to a final act that never fails to get the audience to jump and scream.

We follow it up with the movie that the critics of BFI's 2012 Sight and Sound Poll now consider the #1 movie of all time (edging Citizen Kane to #2), Vertigo. Hitchcock made these movies only 4 years apart from each other and Vertigo shows Hitch committing to something all together even more unsettling and dark then neighborly murder: romantic obsession.

Again we get Jimmy Stewart (how is it that Stewart always seems to be the secret sauce of so many out and out classics?) as retired police detective John Ferguson who leaves the force because of a horrible case of vertigo (fear of heights) which hampers his ability to do his job. But when an old time friend asks "Scottie" to shadow his gorgeous wife Madeleine (a mind blowing Kim Novak) who appears to believe she's possessed by the spirit of a dead San Francisco society lady.

But more sinister things are at work here and Scottie soon falls in love with Madeline. But Madeline, the case, everything are not what they appear to be. And soon Scottie finds himself falling again. . .into a vortex of obsession, confusion, anxiety, insecurity. . .and possibly murder.

The bottom line is that these two movies are absolute dynamite. Hitchcock at his best. And on 35mm. Come join us to drink them in.

Best always,

Craig Hammill

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR OUR IN-DOOR THEATER SCREENINGS

REFUNDS:

We can offer refunds up to 24 hours before showtime. Please request a refund through Eventbrite and we will process ASAP. After that, no refunds. Sorry.

However if something last minute comes up and you can’t make the screening, for whatever reason, just write us at: community@secretmovieclub.com and we’ll offer you complimentary tickets to a future screening.

WHY ARE THE TICKET PRICES HIGHER THAN NORMAL?

In order for us to re-open, maintain health protocols (which includes operating at only 50% capacity), and screen movies on 35MM, we need to temporarily raise our ticket prices. We apologize.

However, if you could look at this as partially helping Secret Movie Club re-open indoor theaters and 35MM film screening, we would be eternally grateful.

As we can increase capacity, we will IMMEDIATELY LOWER ticket prices.

If you could look at this as all of us being in this together, we WILL remember your kindness.

HELPFUL MILLION DOLLAR THEATER MOVIE PALACE PARKING TIPS:

If you are attending all movies on any given day (the double or triple feature), you can go to ADD ONS and pre-order an all day $6 Grand Central Parking Lot Pass. The Grand Central Parking Lot is at the corner of 3rd Street and Hill Street just 1 block from the Million Dollar Theater entrance on 3rd & Broadway.

Folks just attending one feature can also park at this lot and as long as you grab food/drink from GCM you can get a 90 minute validation stamp that will help the cost of parking.

HOW WILL OUR STAFF MAKE SURE THE THEATER IS AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE:

We will have staff in the theater (on both the ground and balcony levels) at all times who make sure everyone is wearing masks and obeying protocols. We will have signage at entrance, markings at concessions, restrooms, etc so folks keep 6 ft distance at all times.

Anyone not observing safe protocols will kindly be asked to leave. On top of this, we’ll be making announcements at the head of each screening to make sure everyone understands the rules & regs!
