(US,1954)Director: Alfred Hitchcock. Screenplay by John Michael Hayes, based on a story by Cornell Woolrich.
Cast: James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Thelma Ritter, Raymond Burr.

For a rare cinematic experience, don’t miss out on Alfred Hitchcock’s Technicolor masterpiece of suspense, in 35mm film on the big screen & in the dark! Hitchcock’s movies only get better with time, and Rear Window works both as an entertaining tale of suspense, and a portrait of a man whose fear and attraction to intimacy plays out in all that he observes. James Stewart plays a world-class photographer with a broken leg, who deals with his ennui by spying on his apartment-dwelling Greenwich Village neighbors across a courtyard. Helpless, he is forced to lean on his poignantly flawless girlfriend (Grace Kelly) after he becomes convinced he has witnessed a murder. 112 min.

“The clearest example of a Hitchcock movie that functions on dual levels: It’s both mousetrap and abyss.” Peter Rainer, New York Magazine.
