One of Alfred Hitchcock's best and one of the all-time great films, Rear Window comes to the beautiful historic Alex Theatre for a special 60th anniversary screening. When a broken leg leaves him wheelchair bound in his New York apartment, news photographer James Stewart passes the time by observing his neighbors -- and begins to believe one of them (Raymond Burr) may have murdered his wife. Aided by his fashionable high-society girlfriend (Grace Kelly) and his wisecracking no-nonsense nurse (Thelma Ritter), Stewart sets out to get to the bottom of the mystery. Included in two of AFI's "Top 100" lists, Rear Window captures the Master of Suspense at the top of his game. Learn More

This is the first film that Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn did in color and the eighth of the nine films in which they appeared together.
Joan Blondell, Gig Young, and Dina Merrill are the supporting cast for this edge of the computer age office romp that is presented in Cinemascope with color by DeLuxe.
The mysterious man hanging about at the research department of a big TV network proves to be engineer Richard Sumner, who’s been ordered to keep his real purpose secret: computerizing the office. Department head Bunny Watson, who knows everything, needs no computer to unmask Richard. The resulting battle of wits and witty dialogue pits Bunny’s fear of losing her job against her dawning attraction to Richard.
