Hitchcock's 'Lodger' to Lodge in Charlottesville, NC

Patrons of the Paramount Theater of Charlottesville in North Carolina, prepare yourselves to be transported back to 1927. That year, Alfred Hitchcock presented his third film, in which a mysterious stranger takes up residence at a London rooming house amidst Jack the Ripper’s reign of terror. Based on Marie Belloc Lowndes’s 1913 novel, The Lodger is the film Hitch supposedly regarded as the true start of his career. The film will be screening at the Paramount on October 26th at 7:30 PM.

A mere screening not transporting enough for you? Well, what about the paltry 25 cents entrance charge? Or the live musical accompaniment by my close friend Matthew Marshall (who composed an all new score for this event) and the Reel Music Ensemble? Enjoy your time traveling. Just don’t fall into the Ripper’s clutches.
