The Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre, Limavady will continues its Saturday Classic Matinee Film Screenings with Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Vertigo’ on Saturday at the end of the month.
The special screening will take place on Saturday May 31, 2pm.
Widely regarded as one of cinema’s masterpieces, this 1958 psychological thriller stars James Stewart as weary detective turned private investigator John ‘Scottie’ Ferguson who is hired to follow the wife of a wealthy acquaintance. Kim Novak plays the haunted Madeleine in what must be her most famous role.
Not only does the film boast a cast of supreme acting calibre, but also a wonderful script and an internationally acclaimed musical score. Directed by Hitchcock, the film displays stunning cinematography, highlighting the landscape of San Francisco to great effect to emphasise the story’s suspense.
Hailed by director Martin Scorsese as one of the best films ever made, replacing ‘Citizen Kane’ on the British Film Institute’s Sight and Sound Critic’s poll in 2012 and named as one of the greatest films ever made by Empire Magazine, this is one classic definitely worth seeing in all its new Technicolor glory on the big screen.
Desima Connolly, Arts & Cultural Services Officer, comments: “To see classic films such as ‘Vertigo’ on a large screen outside of Belfast or any other city is a rarity. These classic matinee screenings are perfect for wiling away a Saturday afternoon, and offer local people and those from further afield, as well as students of Moving Image, the unique opportunity to see classic and world cinema in a regional venue.”
‘Vertigo’ is rated certificate PG and admission is £3.00. For further information, visit www.roevalleyarts.com
