Ritz Presents HITCHCOCK RETROSPECTIVE

Ritz Presents HITCHCOCK RETROSPECTIVE

Over a whopping ten months, we're bringing nearly the entire oeuvre of the Master of Suspense himself - Alfred Hitchcock - back to the big screen.

Hitchcock newbies and aficionados alike will delight in reviving the auteur's works, and watching these films up on the big screen in all their restored glory. The retrospective spans from Hitchcock's early silent films in the 1920s to the height of his directing career in the Paramount Pictures years, making some of his well-known and beloved films including Rear Window (1954), To Catch a Thief (1955), and Vertigo (1958).

As a special treat, two of the silent films in the program will have live musical accompaniment, hearkening back to the early days of cinema, when this was common practice.

On Sunday 4 August at 2pm, film composer Andrew Scott (Sydney Conservatorium of Music) will accompany The Pleasure Garden (1925). 

On Sunday 1 September at 2pm, film composer Guy Gross (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert; Farscape; Swinging Safari) will accompany Easy Virtue (1928).
