Rear Window (1954, 112 min): Alfred Hitchcock’s film, which is supposed to take place at a New York City apartment courtyard, was entirely shot indoors on a giant soundstage at the Paramount lot in Hollywood. Hitchcock made up the villain of the film, played by Raymond Burr, to look exactly like his hated boss, producer David O’ Selznick. Hitchcock considered this film one of his favorites and his most cinematic work. There is no score in the film, all the sounds are natural from the environment in which the film is taking place. Learn about these interesting facts and many more from “the movie guy” as we talk about Rear Window with James Stewart and Grace Kelly and then show the movie.
Doors open at 6 PM; film discussion at 6:30 PM; screening at 7 PM
