Join us this week on Thursday, August 16 for a showing of Hitchcock's classic movie Vertigo (PG/1958). Recently named the Greatest Film of All Time, Vertigo ousted Citizen Kane off the top of the list; a position that Orson Welles' classic film had held for 50 years! Vertigo is a psychological thriller that follows a San Francisco detective, played by Jimmy Stewart, who suffers from acrophobia as he investigates the strange activities of an old friend's wife, played by Kim Novak; all the while becoming dangerously obsessed with her.
