Film Series

Continuing on their long-running streak of totally awesome programming,
the filmophiles at Take Up Productions bust out with something we're
pretty excited about: an Alfred Hitchcock film series! Kicking off this
Friday, the Trylon will host screenings of Shadow of a Doubt
(Friday-Sat) then will hop over to the Riverview Theater on Monday for
a special presentation of classic thriller, Psycho. For five
weeks, the theaters will co-present Hitchcock flicks in the same manner
-- Fridays & Saturdays at the Trylon and Mondays at the Riverview.
The series will explore four decades of cinematic masterpieces that
run the gamut from spy dramas to psychological thrillers, even throwing
Hitchcock's one and only comedy into the mix.-Kate Iverson
