Tonight @ the Times Cinema - 7 p.m.

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, a psychological mystery staring Jimmy Stewart, tanked upon its initial release, but over the years the film was re-discovered as a sort of “lost Hitchcock film,” if not a “lost Hitchcock masterpiece.” It doesn’t provide the popcorn thrills that many of Hitch’s best flicks do, but even casual fans of classic cinema will want to see it on the big screen to appreciate the film’s grand sets, gorgeous colors and...

Rebecca returns to Manderley

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again,” begins the narrator at the opening of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca. The woman speaking, the heroine of the emotionally harrowing classic, is never named. And that is only one of many intriguing twists in a movie that has lost none of its fascination over time. The title character of the 1940 film is never seen but always present. The woman called Rebecca died before the story begins...

Today @ the Times Cinema - 1:30 p.m.

The film is an action-packed remake of his own lighter 1934 movie, this time with Jimmy Stewart in the lead role as a tourist in Morocco who hears the intrigue-laden last words of an assassinated spy.
