ORGAN CONCERT ON OUR "BIGGEST LITTLE WURLITZER" ONE HALF-HOUR BEFORE THE MOVIE BEGINS!


Produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock, 1951’s Strangers on a Train is a psychological thriller film noir starring Farley Granger, Ruth Roman, and Robert Walker. Based on author Patricia Highsmith’s novel of the same name, the film tells the story of two strangers who meet on a train, one of whom suggests that they "exchange" murders so that neither will be caught. Interestingly, Strangers on a Train received mixed reviews when it was released but is now regarded as one of Hitchcock's finest films.

ORGAN CONCERT ON OUR "BIGGEST LITTLE WURLITZER" ONE HALF-HOUR BEFORE THE MOVIE BEGINS!

North by Northwest is a 1959 American spy thriller film produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, and James Mason.The screenplay was by Ernest Lehman, who wanted to write "the Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures". North by Northwest is a tale of mistaken identity, with an innocent man pursued across the United States by agents of a mysterious organization trying to prevent him from blocking their plan to smuggle microfilm out of the country, which contains government secrets. After its first screening, reviewers for The New Yorker and The New York Times immediately hailed it as a masterpiece of comedic, sophisticated self-parody.

ORGAN CONCERT ON OUR "BIGGEST LITTLE WURLITZER" ONE HALF-HOUR BEFORE THE MOVIE BEGINS!

Alfred Hitchcock’s most famous film, 1960’s Psycho, stars Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, John Gavin and Martin Balsam. Perkins plays Norman Bates, caretaker of the Bates Hotel, where Leigh’s character Marion Crane, makes the unfortunate choice of staying the night. The film’s infamous shower scene is one of the most iconic moments in movie history, and Psycho remains one of the most influential films of all time. Despite receiving mixed reviews when it was released, often due to its depictions of sexuality and violence that were shocking to audiences at the time, Psycho was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the United States Library of Congress in 1992 and was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
