Natick pays tribute to Alfred Hitchcock

August 1, 2017 by  

The mastermind director and master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, will be the focus of a film series during the month of August, held by the Center for Arts in Natick.

Hitchcock’s career spanned over 50 years, from 1927 to 1977, and his expertise was in creating suspenseful characters set in the context of situations ridden with anxiety and torment. His genre of thriller films was unique and keeps audiences watching them to this current day.

Among the films that will be screened during the month will be ‘North by Northwest’, ‘Psycho’, ‘Rear Window’, and ‘Vertigo’, with a special celebration on August 13 – his 118th birthday.

The films will run from August 7 through August 28 and all showings will be in the new cinema room at The Center for the Arts.

The Center for Arts in Natick is based in an old firehouse and is in the heart of the Natick Center Cultural District. It provides performance space for a theater production, lectures, a music concert, and films, along with other galleries, artists’ studios, boutiques for crafts, and restaurants in the area.

The Center for Arts in Natick might benefit from the assistance of a local printing company to promote this special tribute to Hitchcock by means of eye-catching flyers and posters that can be displayed in key locations in the town.
