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
Reviews & Ratings
the Alex Film Society presents a Road Show presentation of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA at Glendale’s historic Alex Theatre. This 1962 Oscar® awarded Columbia Pictures release stars the legendary Peter O’Toole in his finest performance: T. E. Lawrence.
David Lean’s 1962 film, based on T.E. Lawrence’s autobiography The Seven Pillars of Wisdom, Lawrence of Arabia is one of the greatest epic films ever made. Shot for nearly two years on location in the Middle East, the film introduced us to newcomers Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif.
Freddie Young’s Super Panavision 70 cinematography raised the bar or all films to follow. Lawrence of Arabia won seven Oscars® and is listed fifth on the American Film Institute’s top 100 films of all time and was just chosen by the AFI as its number one epic film.
After a royal presentation to the Queen of England, the film was cut for time. In 1989 missing footage was restored, and the Alex Film Society will screen the Road Show version of the original cut in Technicolor, 35mm widescreen and Dolby SR sound.
Road Show presentations were saved for major films in Hollywood’s golden era. Characterized by epic films, overture music, intermissions, printed programs and premium priced seating, Road Shows were a way for studios to differentiate the motion picture going experience, especially in the 1950’s as television began to decimate the cinema audience.
