Hitchcocktober at the Angelika Pop-Up
Hitchcocktober is in full swing at the Angelika Pop-Up at Union Market (550 Penn St. NE). Every Thursday in October you can catch a different classic suspense film from Alfred Hitchcock. Shadow of a Doubt plays tonight. All screenings take place at 7pm, and the theater will show Psycho on Halloween night. Tickets for each film are just $10.50, so this is a terrific chance to see these thrillers on the big screen.
Oct. 11 – Shadow of a Doubt (1943, PG): A young woman's favorite uncle arrives for a visit, but all is not well as she begins to suspect that he harbors a dark secret.
Oct. 18 – Strangers on a Train (1951, PG): Two strangers meet on a train and have a discussion about how to commit the perfect murder. One of them was just making conversation, but it soon becomes clear the other was dead serious.
Oct. 25 – 39 Steps (1935, not rated): A man is caught up in international intrigue when a spy is murdered in his apartment and he becomes the chief suspect.
Oct. 31 – Psycho (1960, R): Frustrated in life and in love, a woman makes a fateful decision that brings her to the Bates Motel where she crosses paths with the mild-mannered Norman Bates. Others come asking questions when she disappears mysteriously along with $40,000 cash she stole.
