Past Event
Alfred Hitchcock’s voyeuristic classic about a wheelchair-bound photographer who believes one of his neighbors has murdered his wife has been spoofed in everything from The Flintstones to The Simpsons, but you can see where it all started when the Alamo Drafthouse screens the film for free, courtesy of the Houston Symphony. With classic performances from Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly and Raymond Burr (whose villain, Lars Thorwald, is said to be based on Hitchcock rival David O. Selznick), this is one you won’t want to miss. You can pick up a free ticket at the box office or buy a $5 food and beverage voucher online to reserve a seat. If you can’t make it to Friday’s showing, you can still try Sunday at 3:30 p.m.
