To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock‘s masterful mystery thriller, Vertigo, Park Circus has announced ‘Presenting Alfred Hitchcock’, an exciting new international film season which will see Vertigo return to selected cinemas worldwide as the centrepiece of a series of essential retrospectives.
Following its premiere at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Vertigo will screen in a new 4K restoration at the BFI, Southbank and at cinemas across the UK from 13 July 2018. The film will also be released in international territories.
Vertigo is a dreamlike thriller from the Master of Suspense.
Set in San Francisco, the film creates a dizzying web of mistaken identity, passion and murder after an acrophobic detective (James Stewart) rescues a mysterious blonde (Kim Novak) from the bay and must unravel the secrets of the past to find the key to his future.
In addition, Picturehouse Cinemas will be showing a series of films under their Vintage Sundays strand, celebrating ‘The Genius of Alfred Hitchock’, including North by Northwest, Rear Window, Strangers on a Train, Rebecca and Psycho.
Rebecca will also feature as a highlight of the Film Four Summer Screen at Somerset House this August.
Other cinemas worldwide screening Hitchcock retrospectives over the coming months include Lab111 in Amsterdam, Phenomenena in Barcelona and the Lido, Classic and Cameo Cinemas in Melbourne.
