5 Stars! “superbly produced and at once slickly suspenseful and delicately witty…also benefits from Ernest Lehmann’s spot-on script and Bernard Herrman’s edgily magnificent music. A justifiable masterpiece.” (Empire)

5 Stars! “Alfred Hitchcock’s classic is as thrilling as it is witty, and contains at least two of cinema’s great action set-pieces” (The Times UK)

4/4 Stars! “This is escapism at its best, arranged to stimulate the viewer and carry them from one dazzling moment to the next.” (Deep Focus Review)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!

Advertising man Roger Thornhill is mistaken for a spy, triggering a deadly cross-country chase.
