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

Musical comedy star Mary Martin suggested Yul Brynner for the part of the King in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1951 adaptation of Anna and the King of Siam.
Appearing opposite Gertrude Lawrence during its historic Broadway run, Brynner would eventually appear in the title role almost 5000 times during his forty-year career.
When 20th Century Fox produced its lavish widescreen film version in 1956 it was Deborah Kerr who portrayed the English tutor in the blockbuster hit that garnered nine Academy Award® nominations. Among its five wins was Best Actor for the man who created the part.
Hit songs from the show include “Shall We Dance”, “Getting To Know You”, “Hello Young Lovers” and “I Whistle a Happy Tune”. _
The King And I _is presented in glorious De Luxe color and CinemaScope 55.
