THE HITCHCOCK FILM FESTIVAL

The Trylon Cinema's annual celebration of the Master of Suspense returns with more scares and plot twists than ever before. Featured are some of Hitchcock's best movies, made over four decades, screened at three theaters in the Twin Cities. The Heights is proud to be a part of this tradition, with three screenings: Vertigo in 70mm, The Wrong Man and Strangers on a Train in 35mm.

THE WRONG MAN

April 23, 2020, 7:30 p.m.

35MM PRESENTATION

Manny (Henry Fonda) is not a rich man, so when his wife (Vera Miles) needs dental work, he goes to his life insurance company to borrow on the policy. There, confused employees identify him as a man who had twice held them up, and in no time Manny is plunged into a nightmare that sees him sent to Sing Sing. Based on a true story, and perhaps the most direct expression of Hitchcock's desperate fear of being arrested, The Wrong Man is at once thrilling, despairing, and ultimately hopeful.

"VERTIGO" IN 70MM

April 16, 2020, 7:30 p.m.

70MM PRESENTATION

You have not seen VERTIGO until you have seen it in 70mm!

Soon after his early retirement, Scottie Ferguson (Stewart) is hired by a former college acquaintance to investigate the strange behavior of his wife, Madeleine (Novak). Widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made, this masterpiece of identity and obsession is even more engrossing in a lush 70mm presentation.

STRANGERS ON A TRAIN

35MM PRESENTATION

Two men, each needing a certain someone out of their lives, meet on a train. The first, Guy, a tennis pro, is thinking of the easy divorce he knows will never come. The second, Bruno, a playboy obsessed with his mother, would like his father gone, as in, dead. But Bruno's got a plan, and with that Hitchcock launches this most wicked of films. Based on the acclaimed novel by Patricia Highsmith.
