San Franciscans will have a rare opportunity to see the British Film Institute's loving restoration of the master of suspense's earliest surviving films. The San Francisco Silent Film Festival will present The Hitchcock 9 June 14-16 at the historic Castro Theatre.
This is a chance to see the development of Hitchcock's directorial style from his first film, The Pleasure Garden (1925), to the one he considered "the first true Hitchcock picture", The Lodger (1926). Full program and ticket information is available on the SFSFF's website.
The series will also play at the BAMcinematek at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, June 29-July 5 and at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences' Goldwyn Theater in Los Angeles (dates to be announced).
